Iodine: Breast Cancer Cure?

Could iodine be a breast cancer cure?

One of my good friends died last year of breast cancer. She was in her 40s. Nowadays, none of us are immune. One in 8 women in the US are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Iodine: Breast Cancer Cure?

I’ve been reading the new book, [easyazon-link asin=”098603200X” locale=”us”]The Iodine Crisis: What You Don’t Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life[/easyazon-link] by Lynne Farrow, founder of BreastCancerchoices.org. (Look for my review on the blog soon.)

Here are some interesting quotes from the book:

Breast cancer rates have risen since the 1970s as iodine consumption decreased and anti-iodine bromine exposure increased.

Bromide pesticides and fire retardants will wind up being the new DDT, a pesticide banned in 1972, is still present in the breast tissue of women born later than that date. If the underlying cause of thyroid, breast and other hormone-driven diseases is iodine deficiency, then bromide dominance is the underlying cause of that deficiency.

Iodine and Breast Cancer Statistics

Some statistics about iodine and breast cancer:

  • Iodine consumption has decreased 50 percent since the 1970s.
  • Iodine deficiency diseases of the breast, prostate and thyroid, have increased during that time.
  • Thyroid cancer rates rose 182 percent between 1975 and 2005.
  • Breast Cancer has risen from 1 in 23 to 1 in 7-8 since the 1970s.

Why I Take Iodine to Prevent Breast Cancer

After reading Lynne Farrow’s new book, [easyazon-link asin=”098603200X” locale=”us”]The Iodine Crisis: What You Don’t Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life[/easyazon-link] I’m convinced that I need to take Iodoral every day for breast cancer prevention.

Watch the blog — I’ll soon be posting a review of the new book, [easyazon-link asin=”098603200X” locale=”us”]The Iodine Crisis: What You Don’t Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life[/easyazon-link].
