My doc says there is a direct correlation between the rise in thyroid problems and iodized salt reduction.
These studies are always interesting, the researchers set out to prove what they think is a problem and well find it.
Ur Doc gets his info from the CDC. Can we name one .thing they have gotten right lately? GMO’s from Monsanto. Laginex, spraying cold cuts with silicone to allegedly prevent “lysteria”, lightbulbs full of mercury and no mercury battery environmental disposal? After years of recycling, we are now just to throw batteries in the trash? What goes into water after all of the SHTF? We have been drinking fluoride for years...can someone show me the link to fluoride’s alleged safety?
My doctor has long said the same thing. I'm on thyroid medication because of it.
This article is really very interesting, I'm curious to know what the effects of salt/nitrates are on my Ankylosing Spondylitis. The doctor who treats me for my AS is usually pretty up to speed on this type of research and has already counseled me in the last few years to eat less of certain foods and more of others (inflammation reducing foods) so I'll be curious to know what he says about this article at my next appointment in a few weeks.
