S&F...once again you have started a thread that speaks directly to me. And I too am glad that you are still on ATS!
I have had a long history of Grave's Disease (Hyperthyroidism) which let to my thyroid being irradiated back in 2009. My thyroid gland is
functioning at a very low level and must be supported by taking Levothyroxine daily. I have struggled with weight gain, mental fogginess, lethargy,
dry skin/hair, lots of phlegm and mucus, and general aches/pains over the past few years.
Given that I have high blood pressure, and my husband (Iwinder) has heart issues, we tossed the salt shaker away many years ago. Although we no
longer use salt at the stove or table, there is so much in everything else around it is hard to avoid. I was shocked to read that salt can actually
"impede" the absorption of iodine, so why put it in there in the first place??
We also installed a reverse osmosis water filter on the kitchen tap for drinking & cooking water to remove the chlorine and fluoride, which we knew
were both detrimental to our health. The part that amazes me is that doctors and other health officials recommend drinking plenty of water to help
reduce "mental fogginess" and "memory lapses", cripes and they wonder why ADHD, Autisim and dementia are running rampant in our culture.
I totally agree with you that our health is being undermined by the additives in our diets, my thinking was more in line with creating "job
security" if you will for big pharma. I had not even considered the creation of a submissive population, other than the dumbing down of the masses,
but also reducing our will and means of fighting back against TPTB. Makes me shudder.
I did a quick search and found this link that gives some food sources of Iodine:
This site shows seaweed as the highest source. Wonder how many sushi wraps it takes to make up a 1/4 ounce
Awesome thread & posts, can't wait for all information to come.
