Thyroid — ADDED Nutritional Considerations
Dr. David Brownstein, M.D., in his Dr. David Brownstein’s Natural Way to Health, Vol. 7, Issue 3, March 2014 newsletter stated: “We are currently experiencing an epidemic of cancer of the breast and thyroid diseases. If you take fish oil supplements, you need adequate amounts of iodine to metabolize it into delta-iodolactone. I believe that fish oil supplementation is going to make the iodine deficiency epidemic we are facing even worse.” TREN.net Editor’s note: Perhaps, you might consider using an Omega 6/3+GLA, plant based, essential fatty acid blend instead of fish oil? The The Body Care Studio™ Omega 6/3+GLA blend is better for the body and provides superior oxygen transfer.*
Dr. David Brownstein, M.D., in his 2012 BLOG SPOT continues, "Our continued exposure to bromine requires the daily supplementation with iodine. Over the last 30 years, due to our increasing exposure to bromine, our iodine requirements have increased... Studies have shown that the breasts and other tissues that normally store iodine can accumulate bromine instead of iodine... bromine is also found in many sodas as brominated vegetable oil. This includes Mountain Dew and some Gatorade products. Now, with this study, we can add peanut butter, deli meat and fish to the growing list of contaminated consumer products."
According to a 2013 PUBMED publication, “Soy consumption is associated with thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism, goiter, and autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD) as well as increased iodine requirement in certain cases… Soy ISF, particularly genistein, induced the production of P40, which might be responsible for the higher incidence of ATD reported in soy infant formula-fed children.”(7)
Dr. Joseph Mercola states in his 2010 online article, “It’s ironic that soy has become so accepted as a health food when, as Dr. Daniel states, thousands of studies link soy to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune-system breakdown, thyroid and hormonal dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders and infertility—even cancer and heart disease.”
