New Study Shows
Development of Thyroid
A number of people struggle with thyroid diseases that go
undetected for years before they are given a proper
As the occurrence of thyroid
diseases continues to increase,
researchers have started to focus on
specific factors that may be
contributing to the incidence rates.
More specifically, the thyroid uses minerals such as selenium and iodine to produce
various hormones, but many environmental toxins have structures that are similar to
these minerals and the thyroid mistakenly takes up the harmful chemicals.
Heavy metals reduce the thyroid's
ability to take up nutrients such as
iodine, and the accumulation of these
toxins can cause thyroid damage as
well as certain diseases.
These types of chemicals not only disrupt thyroid function by
mimicking essential nutrients the body needs to make hormones, but
negatively alter the function of the entire endocrine system [5, 6].
PBDEs are better known as flame
retardants and these chemicals are
often abundant in furniture, clothing
made from synthetic material, carpet
padding, and electronic device
A wide variety of household items are made with harsh
chemicals that can negatively alter thyroid function.
Eating organic food as often as
possible also lowers the thyroid's
exposure to dangerous
Taking active steps to avoid exposure to well-known
toxins can support overall thyroid health.
