Iodine Supplements and Cancer Iodine Supplements and Cancer Presentation Transcript

  • Iodine Supplements and Cancer
    Critical to Your Health !!
  • eMedToday
    eMedToday is an online publisher of information related to health and wellness
    Our intent is to help people to understand important health issues
    eMedToday is supervised by Graham Player Ph.D. (Health Sciences) who is an internationally recognized author of several books on health
    Our topic today is Iodine
  • 3
    Studies have linked insufficient iodine levels tonot only thyroid disease but a host of other diseasesincluding
    fibromyalgia and breast, prostate and other cancers
    At a 2010 medical conference, Dr Jorge FlechasMD delivered a paper on iodine, iodine insufficiency and cancer. Dr. Flechas is regarded as one of the contemporary experts on the subject of iodine. In his presentation he made it very clear the absence of iodine in the body is a promoter of cancer
    Insufficient iodine in the breast produces fibrocystic breast disease which is a precursor to developing breast cancer later in life
    Women have considerable more prevalence of thyroid diseasethan men. This is due to higher estrogen levels in women. The estrogen inhibits the body’s ability to absorb iodine
  • Our Iodine Levels Have Decreased
    In the last 30 years, due to changes in our food habits and nutrition, we have reduced the amount of iodine in our cells by up to 50%
    Iodine is no longer present in our salt, bread or milk, and today many people are radically reducing their salt intake
    The result is that for many people their iodine level has become insufficient to support their health and prevent the development of diseaselike breast cancer
  • Increased Toxins
    To make it even worse our society is now using more bromide, chloride and fluoride than ever before. These are known as halogens. Iodine is also a halogen
    All these halogens compete in the body. If our iodine level is low, our body’s receptors actually take up these other halogens which can cause a toxin related diseases
    The increased presence of these other three halogens in turn contribute to the deficiency of iodinethroughout the body
    Add that to the increasing lack of iodine in our soils, and you can understand why it has become a real health issue
  • Iodine and Cancer
    We know that estrogen-dominance from exposure to various chemicals is becoming a problem and can increase the risk of cancer
    It has been shown that iodine can prevent the risk of cancer because it decreases the responsiveness of our genes to cancer and promotes the natural death of cancer cells
    In addition iodine has been found to influence the proportions of the estrogens (estriol, estrone and estrodiol) such that cancer preventing estrogen (estriol) outweighs the other more harmful estrogens
  • Recommendation
    I personally supplement my diet with Iodoral iodine supplementson a daily basis
    Iodoral was the product of choice for mefor the following main reasons:
    Dosage enables both therapeutic level of usage and ongoing maintenance usageas required. Most other iodine supplements contain only a very small dosage of iodine
    Contains both iodine and iodide( as potassium iodide)in what I feel are the optimum proportions beneficial for the body. Most other iodine supplements do not contain both these essential forms
    It is in tablet formrather than liquid form
    The formula and product is designed by a medical practitioner renowned for his knowledge of iodine, his research and clinical findingson the subject of iodine in sufficient levels to maintain health
