There are supposed to be seven deadly sins…
But as far as the drug industry’s concerned, there are really only four.
If something is safe… natural… inexpensive… and effective… it may as well be declared an enemy of the state.
They’ll do EVERYTHING they can to make people fear and avoid it.
And if you want to see the perfect case in point… just look what’s quietly becoming the leading cause of a debilitating condition affecting millions.
Poor thyroid function can lead to fatigue, sluggishness, weight gain, and moodiness.
But the mainstream is out right now with a new report that’ll SCARE you away from the single best way to CURE it!
Drawing a line on iodine
Iodine has got all four deadly sins in spades.
It effectively boosts thyroid function safely and naturally… and it won’t cost you a pretty penny.
It’s also positively ESSENTIAL.
But Medscape – the leading website for doctors – published a report that makes taking iodine supplements seem like swimming with piranhas.
This report flat-out warns that supposedly “high” iodine content in a supplement won’t help… and “may even pose harm.”
The report notes the American Thyroid Association urges people to avoid iodine supplements with more than 500 micrograms. It claims going beyond that regularly can trigger hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and/or autoimmune thyroiditis.
That sure as heck sounds scary. Who the heck wants hypo-, hyper-, or autoimmune ANYTHING???
Well, guess what. We already have a HUGE population with massive iodine intakes, at least by these standards.
The Japanese get as much as 11 milligrams a day of iodine per day from all the seaweed they eat. That’s 22 TIMES the supposed “danger” levels in this new report.
So, Japan must have an epidemic of hypo-, hyper-, or autoimmune thyroid disease… right?
They’re swimming along just fine.
Yet the “experts” here are warning against it??? And who are these experts anyway?
The American Thyroid Association sure SOUNDS like some impartial panel of experts.
Their disclosure claims “only” 13 percent of their funding comes from the industry.
But – whoops! – it also notes a whopping 40 percent comes from “annual meeting registration fees and booth rentals,” which “includes the rent paid by commercial vendors to showcase their products such as books, pharmaceuticals, and medical equipment.”
Something tells me these experts may be more easily swayed than they let on.
Now, I’m not saying you should go out and gobble up all the iodine tablets you can find. You may or may not need it.
Ideally, your doc SHOULD help you figure it out.
But he’s reading about the “horrors” of iodine in Medscape, so you can see what you’re up against here.
If you have low energy and the signs of sluggish thyroid, a little iodine might help… but don’t take it alone.
Iodine requires the amino acid L-tyrosine to put it to work.
Other essentials for good thyroid function include copper, zinc, and selenium.
Any decent thyroid support supplement will have most or all of these nutrients.
