Iodine Deficiency

What are you doing to combat the health problem of our age?

Is this actually proven that we need extra iodine? As with everything else, no one knows what is too much or too little.

Apparently it's the cause of cancer and autism!

But it's in table salt, which is generally quite abundant in most diets. How are people deficient?

For what it's worth, Dr. Oz had a specialist on last week who said we didn't need extra iodine.

Dr Oz is a quack who pushes the ex-gay therapy movement and should have his license to practice revoked. a complete fraud and an asshole besides.

Apparently, iodine deficiency has increased dramatically in the last thirty years. Also, most households no longer used iodized salt.

Dr. Brownstein says in the 1970s bread manufacturers started substituting bromine for iodine in the bread, and that is the cause.

Your goiter would be a clue to low iodine

And that in general, we are being poisoned by bromine and bromides.

Also most salt being sold no longer contains iodide, because of people like Dr. Oz.

[quote]While this is uncommon in the U.S., iodine deficiency is the most common cause of hypothyroidism worldwide

The thyroid experts don't seem to believe this latest bit of marketing aimed at silly American fraus.

I can't stand the taste or smell of iodine so I would never buy iodized salt. I don't eat lobster because most of the time it tastes and reeks of iodine.

There are other foods we can eat that contain iodine. I eat a lot of seaweed and shellfish.

The American Thyroid Association says many people have a deficit.

Actually R12, it doesn't say anything like that.

It is a leading cause of cretinism so its epidemic proportions in the USA must be self-evident.

That's how they find cancers in many procedures: look for the area with no iodine.

I stopped using table salt three years ago. This summer I had a blood test done and my thyroid levels were fucked up. The doc said to start using some table salt and we'll see what the next blood test says.

That is a direct quote from r14. Learn to read.

Just one of those things where they give two tons of something to a rat and it dies.

Every time a fucking mouse bites the dust we lose something else that's delicious.

Does anyone here take it?
