The fluorosis is one of the geogenic contaminated drinking water borne diseases caused by the fluoride contamination in ground water. In India, 11.5 million people are at high risk due to fluorosis such as dental fluorosis and skeletal fluorosis across the 132 districts of 21 states. In Jharkhand mainly two districts, Garhwa and Palamu have the fluoride content in drinking water. So many technologies are available to remove the fluoride from the drinking water but not affordable to the poor people due to high cost. In place to this technology food substances should be included in the diet chart to combat the fluorosis so that poor people also access to get solution. We should include the foods rich in calcium or induces the absorption of calcium or directly eliminate the fluoride from our body in poor people diet to combat the fluorosis. In Jharkhand, the most affordable food is the green leafy vegetables called as “Cassia tora” or locally called “Chakor Ki Bhanji”. It is abundantly found in the Garhwa & Palamu districts of Jharkhand near the road side and mainly during the rainy seasons. This is the most affordable food to combat the fluorosis in Jharkhand. The use of “chakor ki bhaji” as vegetable is also in practices of the people. It would be the opportunity to minimize the menace of fluorosis in Jharkhand by using the leaves of Cassia Tora as vegetables and need to make aware people for use as alternatives of medicines. This leafy vegetable is most affordable food for poor people to minimize the fluorosis and also the farming of this medicinal plant in waste land would increase the income of farmers and also may be the commercial options for farmers as well as agrienterpreneur.
