THYROID DISEASE IS KILLING US

More than 30,000,000 people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder Most affected are women. Some estimates are over 50 million in US and over 200 million worldwide, and growing.

Estimates vary widely as most patients are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because doctors don't know what they are looking for.

Thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. This means that over 27 million people have one or more of the over 105 known autoimmune diseases.

There is Arsenic in Your Rice, and Other Foods

 

Arsenic is a chemical that occurs naturally in the environment, and combines with other elements to come in tow forms: organic and inorganic. The chemical can occur naturally in soil, or be added to the environment through industrial processes like burning of wood and fuel, or through use of pesticides.

Arsenic can’t be destroyed, so wind may send particles into the air, water and land — and subsequently into our food and water supplies.

Inorganic arsenic is the more toxic form of the chemical. Prolonged exposure has been linked to increased risk for cancers, but also other health issues including heart disease, diabetes and neurological deficits.

Previous research – including studies from Dartmouth University and Consumer Reports — found concerning levels of inorganic arsenic linked to rice, and rice products like infant formula and cereal bars.

The above video is from September 2012.

“Worrisome levels of arsenic” were found in rice in a study of 200 rice products.

From “Wired” magazine:

Today [September 19, 2012], the magazine Consumer Reports released a report on independent laboratory tests that found inorganic arsenic – a known carcinogen – in some 200 rice products purchased in grocery stores across the United States. The admitted point was to pressure the U.S. Food and Drug Administration into setting a safety standard for arsenic in the American food supply, something the FDA has been embarrassingly reluctant to do.

Today and Tomorrow . . . What To Do?

A) Don’t eat white rice, ever.

B) Eat only organic rice/brown rice.

C) Eat only organic to limit any arsenic in all your food.

Eating organic means that there will be more diligence on every level to keep arsenic and other toxins and poisons out of the food supply. Plus, as much of arsenic comes from pesticides, and pesticides are not used on organic foods, that’s most of the battle won already.

Find out more from WIRED SCIENCE BLOG article, Arsenic and Rice. Yes, Again.

At the end of this article is this sentence.

…Consumer Reports is largely doing these studies (it focused last year on arsenic in fruit juice) to pressure the FDA into setting a reasonable standard on arsenic in the diet.

Oh, wait! We’re supposed to trust the FDA, who supports GMOs to “set a reasonable standard on arsenic in our diet?” Right!

Read more in this CBS News article from September 6, 2013, FDA: Arsenic in rice won’t harm health immediately, but long-term risk unclear.

You MUST be in charge of your own diet, right now.

      Hi Esther, Yes, my manual will give you the diet that will support your thyroid health.
      Not everyone with a thyroid problem gets Hashimoto’s disease. But the diet will help you immensely to keep your thyroid system in balance,even without the glands.
      Do take your thyroid medication daily too of course.

      Kim
