Most Breast Cancers caused by Iodine Deficiency
9/7/11 | me

Posted on 09/07/2011 4:03:03 PM PDT by spacejunkie01

I see today that Andrea Mitchell has breast cancer. I read threads here and at other sources from time to time of others newly diagnosed or struggling with it.

What you won't hear most of the medical community tell you is, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, other reproductive cancers, including prostate, are tied directly to iodine deficiency. Same applies for breast and uterine fibroids and enlarged prostate glands. As well as goiter or nodules on the thyroid.

I felt compelled to start a thread on this as we ALL need iodine and we are almost ALL deficient in it. Iodine is a crucial mineral, just as magnesium and calcium are but we get very little in our food supply and there are competing toxins (bromine, flouride, chlorine) that keep us from absorbing the little we get.

Go to www.breastcancerchoices.org for more information on the relationship between iodine deficiency and breast cancer (as well as a place to buy Iodoral) and check out Dr. David Brownstein's books and info and go to Optimox for more information.

Will be eating more yogurt... Seafood is a mixed bag—good with the iodine, not so good with the mercury.

Common iodized table salt was supposed to help this, but today so many processed foods have enough salt that table salt is seldom added in preparation or at the table.

What effect does insufficient iodine have in men?

Iodized salt was introduced for this purpose - then we were warned to reduce salt intake...unintended consequence!

Is iodine added to any other food products?

Unfortunately, you won’t get iodine from yogurt. In fact, short of eating massive amounts of kelp every day like they do in Japan, you won’t get enough to offset the toxic halide Bromine, that is in almost all of our baked goods, including a ton of other non edible products.

You have to supplement with it and the only 2 products that have the right amounts of iodine/iodide are Iodoral (pill form) or Lugol’s (liquid).

Research suggests that some breast cancers may be
an iodine deficiency disease.

The iodized salt did help alleviate goiter but there is such a miniscule amount of iodine added to it that it does not have a solid affect in saturating our cells with iodine because of the toxins that ‘mimic’ iodine and block its absorption in tiny doses. When I say tiny, I mean the RDA in the US is 150 mcg and the Japanese, as an example, get 14-15 mg per day (excuse the sorry math, but about 1000 x more). They have a VERY low incidence of breast/thyroid/uterine/ovarian/prostate cancer in Japan.

I meant to mention, prostate issues are due to iodine deficiency, as well as the benefit of the thyroid, for men.

Actually, reducing salt is also extremely bad advice but we need to consume unrefined natural salt; it emulates your blood due to all the minerals in it. Salt and potassium work in a ratio to each other so to offset salt you can up your potassium.

But most important is using the right salt. Salt does not cause hypertension; magnesium deficiency does.

Very interesting. Thank you for posting this. I’m going through my ‘mental’ filecabinet right now and trying to remember the sources for iodine.

Thx again.

excellent...what are you taking and what dosage? It’s important to note; you MUST do salt (1/2 tsp or so) every day in warm water, as well as magnesium, selenium and Vitamin C.

These things are called the ‘iodine protocol’ and they assist in the detox process that iodine causes.

Sea salt lacks enough iodine to make a difference. Lots of processed foods contain so much sodium you don’t need table salt (which has iodine added). There are other foods that contain iodine. http://www.weightlossforall.com/foods-rich-iodine.htm

exactly. Good salt is great for you. The chloride in the salt attaches to the toxins and removes them from your kidneys.

and I kid you not, if you drop a 1/2 tsp of good salt in water and drink it down (then follow with 16 oz or so of clean water) you will get the best ‘lift’ to your spirits as the salt is so good for your adrenal glands.

Thanks. I just read that dairy products are a good source for it as well.

I must tell my brother this since we are both at the age when the problems start. He’s a health food junkie...very very health conscious.

and both are low most likely due to their high intake of seafood and kelp. Iodine promotes what’s called apoptosis, which is the natural death of cells. Cancer cells don’t die, they multiply. Iodine makes the cells die a natural death.

I’ll point something else out about magnesium which is a crucial mineral. It makes 350+ other things click into place in your body when you are getting enough. Calcium MUST have enough magnesium with it to dissolve. We are all very deficient in mag as well and a series of symptoms of that are ‘calcifications’ in your veins (plaque), asthma, breast calcifications, kidney stones, gallbladder stones, etc etc.

I would bet big money you’re not but don’t take my advice. Just hear me out.

Iodine is SUCH an effective detox that the “symptoms” of allergy to iodine or shellfish are actually detox symptoms. Dr. Brownstein fleshes this out as well. If you happen to take iodine or shellfish, do the salt in water and see if it doesn’t go away.

Please remember; iodine is CRUCIAL for life. There is no way you are allergic to it.

It's also a mistake to assume, as the guy does at breastcancerchoices.org, that just because exogenous iodine can induce apoptosis in certain cancer cells in rats that breast and other cancers are caused by a deficiency in iodine. That's somewhat like claiming that because water can put out house fires, a main cause of house fires is a water deficiency.

Yup!

Without salt, the sodium-potassium pumps on the cells won’t work. That means even if you are getting enough potassium, it won’t get into the cells where it is needed.

The potassium-sodium gradient inside versus outside of cells is part of the mix that sustains the electrical charge across the cell membranes.

That drives the movement of materials into-out of the cells and keeps them operating and youthful.

Spot on SJ.

Say it with me everybody:
Magnesium
Iodine
Selenium

These are the minerals that will keep you healthy. I highly suggest magnesium chloride topically, nascent iodine, and selenium (which is usually good if you take a good multi). It's difficult to get enough magnesium orally because of the adverse digestive effects (think Milk of Magnesia), and bioavailable iodine is difficult to get in a regular diet.

Further, cellular apoptosis is the future of cancer treatments. Cancer cells are regular cells that have de-evolved. They are very very persistent and aggressive cells. The best way to kill them is to make them kill themselves.

“Iodine is the trigger mechanism for apoptosis (that natural death of cells) and the main surveillance mechanism for abnormal cells in the body. Iodine triggers the death of cells which are abnormal or which have normal programmed death as part of their life cycle.

“This is part of a general thesis that iodine and thyroid hormone act as a team to provide a constant surveillance against abnormal cell development, chemicals that are carcinogenic and the spread of cancer cells within the body.

spot on to you as well :)

I take high doses of mag malate which CURED my husband of fybromyalgia but I’m also now taking mag chloride in a pill form and will switch completely when my mag malate is gone.

I like to tell people that God told us in Genesis that from the dust we were made....dust is dirt and dirt is minerals :)
