One of the largest endocrine glands in the body is the thyroid gland. It is found in the front of the neck below the larynx. This gland controls how quickly the body makes proteins, burns energy, and how sensitive the body should be to other hormones.
Moreover, it resembles a factory that uses iodine to produce thyroid hormones.One of the largest endocrine glands in the body is the thyroid gland. It is found in the front of the neck below the larynx. This gland controls how quickly the body makes proteins, burns energy, and how sensitive the body should be to other hormones. Moreover, it resembles a factory that uses iodine to produce thyroid hormones.
But, its work can be influenced by numerous factors, and they can cause various problematic problems. Unfortunately, the thyroid diseases are running close to an epidemic in our country. According to the statistics, women are most affected.
Don’t panic! We can reduce the risk for this by minimizing our exposure to harmful compounds.
Here is a list of seven harmful compounds we use regularly:
A recent study showed that about 60 percent of pesticides that people use every day may affect the thyroid’s production of hormones. This study also discovered that weed killers and pesticides reduce thyroid function and increase resistance to weight loss.
Plastic bottles that we use every day, release antimony, which is a very harmful chemical. So, the plastic bottles that you considered as healthy are actually very harmful, especially for the thyroid gland. The University of Copenhagen Research Center warns to avoid plastic bottles because they have found that levels of antimony in plastic bottles were 2.5% higher than the normal level.
Bromine is very toxic to the thyroid gland. But, it can be found almost everywhere, from some types of food to some cleaning supplies.
Perchlorate is a waste product produced by rockets and jets fuel. It is found in the water used for our vegetables and fruits, and in our drinking water. So, we are exposed to its harmful effect.
Soybeans contain phytoestrogens. They upset the function of the thyroid gland because they block the secretion of thyroid hormone.
Halogens include chloride and fluoride, which disturb the normal thyroid function. Exposure to fluoride and chlorine leads to interruption of Iodine transportation. Halogens are absorbed through water, food, and even the environment and are very harmful.
Until the 1950s, fluoride was prescribed to people who had hyperthyroidism. They were prescribed in small proportions of 2-5 mg on a daily basis over a period of 30 days. We recommend you to try an incredible natural drink which is powerful enough to fight off thyroid conditions and to improve your overall health.
