Breast Cancer Prevention and Iodine Supplementation

I have always wondered why, despite how much more we know, breast cancer shows no sign of abating.  By coincidence, thyroid disease has become so common that it appears every 2nd woman over 40 has thyroid disease and on medication such as thyroxine.  A further coincidence is both these diseases are associated with iodine deficiency.  Is it also a coincidence that the increase in these diseases seems to coincide almost perfectly with the rolling out of the "No Salt" message about 30 years ago by the heart health experts?

In New Zealand, iodised salt is our main source of dietary iodine.  Eliminate the table salt and you eliminate your only source of iodine (Salt in commercially produced foods is generally lacking iodine).

Prevent one disease - Create two more:

Breast cancer and thyroid disease

This is always going to be a problem when a committee of single issue health experts shut themselves in a room and come up with a set of public health guidelines to prevent a single disease like heart attack.

An example of completely misguided but well-intentioned health advice, is the Sun Smart message.  While there may have been a marginal reduction in skin cancer, the consequent vitamin D deficiencies increase risk of at least 28 other cancers and other aliments such as depression and osteoporosis!

Single issue health policies may actually kill more than they save

I feel very sad that there is little or no interest among health advocacy agencies and medical experts in advising women (and men) to ensure they have adequate intakes of iodine.  Instead, all resources are directed at detection of disease and radical treatment - All after the Fact!  Far too late!

Early detection is not PREVENTION

Here are sources of dietary and supplementary iodine which can be added liberally and safely to your family's daily meals (Refer to the article below for guidance).

Here is an interesting article by Dr Dach about the iodine and breast cancer issue.

A good friend of ours just went through an ordeal with breast cancer. The incidence of breast cancer has increased to 1 in 8 women, with 4,000 new cases weekly. You might ask, could there be a preventive measure which is safe, cheap and widely available that has been overlooked? The answer is YES , and it’s the essential mineral, Iodine , which was added to table salt in 1924 as part of a national program to prevent Goiter. It turns out that this same Iodine in table salt is the key to breast cancer prevention
