    Interesting article here on the thyroid. I think I have heard of the iodine depletion theory elsewhere but this article had some great timing for me personally because my son's teacher requested that I bring some Mountain Dew in for a reinforcer for my son with autism. I will now have to come up with another reinforcer (sigh). Main point, avoid BROMINE! Here is the linky:

    I copied part of the article below in which it shows what Bromine can do to you.

    Oh, and this article also linked to a paper about the urinary output of iodine levels in Americans. Apparently, we are peeing a lot less iodine over the past 20 years.

    Add to this the stripped down thing they call salt today and how they keep reducing even that in our diet and it's no wonder there is an epidemic of thyroid problems.

    Seriously, I long for the days when we had sugar in our sodas and iodine in our baked goods products. My ex-husband's family have to avoid any type of bready products because it causes gastrointestional problems. Both of my son's with autism also get strange skin rashes.
