Get THIS Nutrient… Or Get Cancer
Here’s something you’ll NEVER hear from our government…
Our food today is practically GARBAGE.
A tomato today isn’t the same as a tomato 50 years ago (you can probably taste the difference).
That’s because industrial agriculture has practically stripped all of the key nutrients out of our soil.
And, believe it or not, that’s causing a major mineral deficiency that may be wrecking your health right now.
In fact, it may be making you a sitting for cancer.
You have probably heard iodine is essential for your thyroid gland to function.
But what most people don’t realize is that 70% of the iodine in your body is found outside the thyroid.
So, what is iodine doing elsewhere in our body?
- It’s stopping cancer: In our bodies, cells grow, divide, and then die. This cell death is a normal process called apoptosis.
Some cells, though, don’t follow this plan. Cancer cells don’t die off normally – they keep dividing and spreading. Iodine is an important nutrient because it promotes cancer cell death when taken in high amounts.
- It’s protecting our brains: Iodine is essential for healthy hair and the normal development of our brains. When you’re low on iodine, you may have difficulty thinking or understanding.
And, as I already discussed, iodine helps our thyroid glands function properly.
Some symptoms of a sluggish thyroid include: brittle nails, cold hands and feet, high cholesterol, dry skin, fatigue, hair loss, difficulty concentrating, hormone imbalances, muscle cramps, weakness, poor memory and concentration, depression, and weight gain.
I’m going to guess that none of that sounds appealing to you.
So, you must get iodine in your diet. Since most land plants and animals don’t have enough, you have to make an effort to include sea vegetables such as nori, wakame, and other seaweeds.
If you don’t like the idea of eating seaweeds, then you should supplement.
You can find iodine supplements at any online or local vitamin shop.
