Bromine has no known nutrient value,
but will impede thyroid hormone
synthesis when iodine status is low
Arsenic, a toxin sometimes found in fish
and rice, competes with selenium

Mercury, a heavy metal toxin found in
dental amalgams, seafood and vaccinations,
binds selenium and reduces thyroid function
Iodine deficiency up fourfold over the past
40 years. Nearly 74% of healthy adults
may no longer consume enough iodine.
