A federal lawsuit filed by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) led to the release of documents confirming details of the planned “Protective Action Guides” (PAGs) to be implemented, which include the new radically higher maximum allowable radiation levels.

PEER has accused the EPA of jeopardizing public health in favor of public relations.

From a PEER press release dated December 22, 2016:

“Following Japan’s Fukushima meltdown in 2011, EPA’s claims that no radioactivity could reach the U.S. at levels of concern were contradicted by its own rainwater measurements showing contamination from Fukushima throughout the U.S. well above Safe Drinking Water Act limits. In reaction, EPA prepared new limits 1000s of times higher than even the Fukushima rainwater because ‘EPA experienced major difficulties conveying to the public that the detected levels…were not of immediate concern for public health.’”

EPA kept details of new guidelines a secret

Although the EPA released its proposed PAGs for public comment, it conveniently neglected to include “all but four of the 110 radionuclides covered, and refused to reveal how much they were above Safe Drinking Water Act limits.”

Only after the PEER lawsuit forced the EPA to release the pertinent documents did it become clear how much the levels were to be increased. Even so, more than 60,000 people had already left comments in opposition of the proposed guidelines on the agency’s website.

Current drinking water radiation limits are defined under the Safe Drinking Water Act, established in the 1970s.

The documents obtained by PEER revealed that the EPA plans to raise maximum allowable limits of iodine-131, cobalt-60 and calcium-45 to more than 10,000 times the levels allowed under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Others would be hundreds or thousands of times higher under the new guidelines.

The agency’s justification for withholding the new proposed limits from the public until after the proposal had been adopted was that it wanted to “avoid confusion.”

The EPA deliberately hid the details not only from the public, but also from some of its own staff, according to PEER:

“The documents also reveal that EPA’s radiation division even hid the new concentrations from other divisions of EPA that were critical of the proposal, requiring repeated efforts to get them to even be disclosed internally.”

Even the George W. Bush administration’s attempt to introduce higher limits – a plan that was ultimately withdrawn – was modest in comparison to the levels proposed under the Obama EPA.

On December 1, outgoing EPA administrator Gina McCarthy gave final approval to all of the proposed PAGs – except for the drinking water standards. It’s unclear at this point whether she will actually approve the water section before leaving office, or whether she will leave the issue to the next administration to deal with.

Voice your opposition (before it’s too late)

There appears to be a good chance McCarthy will approve the rest of the PAGs before the changing of the guard, and there is still time to make your opposition to the proposals known.

It’s important to understand that higher allowable radiation limits will take pressure off the nuclear and fracking industries as well, which may be the real motivation for the establishment of the new guidelines – with Fukushima merely serving as an excuse to do so.

“The Dr. Strangelove wing of EPA does not want this information shared with many of its own experts, let alone the public,” said PEER executive director Jeff Ruch. “This is a matter of public health that should be promulgated in broad daylight rather than slimed through in the witching hours of a departing administration.”

Iodine Deficiency — An Old Epidemic Is Back /iodinenews/2016-12-08-iodine-deficiency-an-old-epidemic-is-back.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-iodine-deficiency-an-old-epidemic-is-back.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 One of the main roles for the mineral iodine is to help manufacture hormones. And once upon a time in America — especially in the Great Lakes region — there were many cases of goiter, an enlarged gland caused by deficiency. The iodine/goiter story had a happy ending, however, when manufacturers began adding iodine to salt (“iodized salt”). After that, goiters in the U.S. mostly disappeared.

Article by Jacob Teitelbaum

But the iodine story turns out to have an epilogue. A new epidemic of has occurred. And it’s bringing a lot more than goiters with it.

Fatigue? Pain? Weight gain? Breast cysts or tenderness? In this article I’ll tell you why you might be at risk for an iodine deficiency, what it might be doing to your health — and an easy way to protect yourself.

Bromide and Bad Medical Advice

There are two main reasons why iodine deficiency may be making a comeback.

Until recently, about 25% of the iodine in the was from wheat, because iodine was used in the processing of flour. Now, however, a lot of flour in the U.S. is processed with a chemical cousin of iodine, bromide (potassium bromate), which helps makes flour doughier, rise higher, and gives the loaf a better appearance. But bromide is a double-edged sword: not only has it replaced iodine, it may block the activity of iodine. That’s also true for two more of iodine’s chemical cousins — chlorine and fluoride, both of which are common in drinking water.

There’s another problem with bromide. The International Agency for Research on classified potassium bromate as a Class 2B carcinogen, and it was banned in the U.K. in 1990 and in Canada in 1994. It’s still legal in the U.S., although in 1999 The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) petitioned the FDA to ban it, saying the agency “has known for years that bromate causes in laboratory animals.”

Iodine deficiency isn’t only about our daily bread — it’s also about our daily salt. Most of the salt used in food processing isn’t iodized. And people are using less and less iodized table salt at home, because of the misguided medical advice (except in those with heart failure) to avoid salt. (People who eat more salt live longer: see Eat Less Salt — and Die?)

The end result is Americans who dine on less iodine. From 1971 to 2001 iodine intakes in the U.S. dropped by 50% (estimated by urine output). Though it fortunately is not continuing to drop, we still have lost half our iodine.

So Why Is This a Big Problem?

Iodine is one of the most important minerals — your body requires it for healthy cellular and metabolic functioning. The book by Dr. David Brownstein, Iodine: Why You Need It and Why You Can’t Live Without It, sums up its importance:

“Iodine is the most misunderstood nutrient. After 12 years of practicing medicine, I can say that it is impossible to achieve your optimal health if you do not have adequate iodine levels. I have yet to see any item that is more important for promoting health than iodine.”

If Dr. Brownstein is right, and I agree that iodine deficiency is a major problem — our drop in iodine intakes might be contributing to many major health problems.

Examples? Iodine deficiency might be contributing to the large increase in thyroid problems being seen clinically. Low iodine can contribute to an increased risk of both underactive and overactive thyroid. And iodine-blocking bromides are implicated in many thyroid disorders — one study showed bromides were 50 times higher in the thyroid tissue of people with thyroid cancer.

Breast cysts and breast cancer. Iodine plays a key role in breast tissue, and women with breast cancer have lower iodine levels in their breast tissue than women without the disease. Women in Japan get much more iodine in their diets — and have a 65% lower risk of breast cancer than U.S. women. The effect of iodine on breast tissue is so marked, that hypothyroid women (who can’t process the mineral well in the thyroid, thereby freeing up more iodine for use in breast tissue) actually have lower levels of breast cancer. I recommend Tri-Iodine 6.25-12.5 mg a day in women with breast tenderness, cysts, or cancer. The benefits can be striking.

Lower levels of iodine may increase the risk of heart disease. For a review of this issue, see Hypothesis: Dietary Iodine Intake in the Etiology of Cardiovascular Disease in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.

Connection to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Low iodine might also contribute to fatigue and CFS. A study showed that people with low body temperature and fatigue felt better and had more when they took a daily supplement of 1,500 micrograms (mcg) of iodine (the RDA is 150), though their temperature didn’t rise. It’s reasonable for those with unexplained fatigue, CFS or fibromyalgia to add a Tri-Iodine supplement (6.25-12.5 mg) for three months to see if it helps. You’ll often see a marked increase in energy within the first month.

Low iodine has also been associated with weight gain (see Less Iodine, More Likely To Gain Weight).

How Do You Know Your Iodine Levels Are Low?

Iodine testing isn’t always the best way.

The accuracy of iodine testing hasn’t been confirmed to my satisfaction. Much as we like to have a piece of paper that gives definitive test results, sadly these results are often not reliable (see Lab Testing is NOT Reliable!). I find it works best to treat a person’s symptoms, and see if that helps. I would treat for an iodine deficiency in people who have:

  1. Breast cysts or tenderness, or breast cancer. I consider these markers for iodine deficiency.
  2. CFS, fibromyalgia or unexplained fatigue.
  3. Thyroid disease or thyroid cancer.
  4. Low body temperature of under 98.0° Fahrenheit.

If you prefer to have lab confirmation of a low iodine level, Dr. Kent Holtorf (Holtorf Medical Group) uses urine iodine testing from NiTek and then treats with iodine if levels are low. He estimates that 50-60% of the population is low, and 20-30% are very low. Dr. Brownstein conducts an iodine-loading test, which is discussed in his book. He finds that 95% of the folks he tests are low. Of course the question with iodine testing is how one defines “low.” Although testing is a reasonable option, I’m not anxious to order a test that doesn’t affect how I treat a person — and I think a good case can be made for treating everyone for three months who falls into one or more of the above four categories.

Supplementing with Iodine

Doctors used to use Lugol’s solution, a mix of iodine and iodide. But it’s messy, irritates the stomach, and can mildly stain teeth. As I mentioned earlier, a much-preferred option is Tri-Iodine from EuroPharma, a combination of molecular iodine, sodium iodide, and potassium iodide, for a total of 12.5 mg (12,500 mcg) of iodine per capsule. Some doctors use more than one capsule a day, but it’s best if you take these higher doses only under the supervision of a holistic physician, because doses over 13,000 mcg a day may suppress thyroid function. There are two other cautions:

  1. A small percent of those with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis will occasionally flare when taking an iodine supplement (even in a ). This usually goes away over time, and the iodine is actually helpful for the condition. And many doctors who use high-dose iodine, such as in Tri-Iodine, report they see less sensitivity in folks with Hashimoto’s who start with a high, rather than a low, dose.
  2. If you have a known iodine allergy (usually an allergic reaction to the iodine used in x-ray dyes), you shouldn’t take iodine. Having said that, I’ve never seen anyone who had this type of allergic reaction also react to an iodine supplement — but better safe than sorry.
  3. If it causes acne (this is rare), lower the dose. Also, if it flares severe indigestion (pain in the solar plexus), lower the dose or stop it (also uncommon).

Diet and Lifestyle

There are a higher percentage of on the island of Okinawa than there are anywhere else in the world — and it’s reported that they ingest between 80 and 200 mcg of iodine daily. I think it’s a good idea for everyone to get at least 150-200 mcg. And there are several ways to make sure you do just that:

  1. Seafood tends to be high in iodine. An especially rich source is seaweed, such as kelp. This is why the average Japanese women who eats a lot of seaweed gets 12,500 mcg of iodine in her daily diet — and maybe why she’s a lot healthier than the average American woman, who is lucky if she gets 150 mcg daily. It also may be why breast cancer is much less common in Japan than in the U.S., where the breast cancer rate is three times higher than Japan’s!
  2. If you eat a lot of soy products, cut back — especially unfermented soy (e.g., soy milk, soy cheese, and soy protein added to food). Large amounts of soy can block thyroid function, though this is less of a problem with fermented soy products, like tempeh and tofu.
  3. If your local water contains fluoride, consider a filter that eliminates it. Avoid bromide, too, when you can. (One unusual source: chemicals added to hot tubs to stop the growth of unwanted bacteria. There are other options available.)

Bottom Line?

For those with CFS/FMS, unexplained fatigue, a low body temperature, difficulty losing weight or breast disease, it’s reasonable to take an iodine supplement. Take one tablet a day for 90 days (one bottle if using Tri-Iodine, as I recommend) — either 6.25 or 12.5 mg a day is fine. After three months, if you feel much better you can stay on the supplement. Or you can stop it and see if your problems worsen, a sign that you still need it. (You may find that one bottle is enough to “fill your tank” and correct your deficiency.)

For everyday maintenance, use the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder, which supplies 150 mcg of iodine (the RDA).

For those with breast cancer, I would suggest adding a 12.5 mg (12,500 mcg) Tri-Iodine capsule a day to your long-term daily regimen. You might also want to work with a holistic physician, taking up to 5 capsules daily — but these higher doses require monitoring of thyroid function.

Heal hypothyroidism in 4 simple steps /iodinenews/2016-12-08-heal-hypothyroidism-in-4-simple-steps.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-heal-hypothyroidism-in-4-simple-steps.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Creating an optimal hormonal balance is one of the best things one can do for their health. Fully functional hormones will increase energy, improve sleep, reduce anxiety, and much more. Learn to heal hypothyroidism by incorporating these four simple steps.

Foods to eat

The most common nutritional deficiency behind hypothyroidism is insufficient iodine. The low levels of this mineral in the diet spurred the recommendations to add it to table salt. Unfortunately, iodine has a short shelf life and table salt is heavily processed and often contains chemical residue.

The best bet is to eat foods that naturally contain iodine and other nutrients that assist with its proper absorption. Examples of these foods are:

• Seaweed (kelp, dulse, nori)
• Cranberries
• Navy beans
• Eggs
• Himalayan crystal salt
• Potatoes
• Black strap molasses
• Apple cider vinegar

It’s also a good idea to consume beneficial fats, such as:

• Avocados
• Coconut oil
• Cod liver oil

In addition to these recommendations, consider foods that clean up the digestive system such as fermented vegetables and kefir.

Foods to eliminate

There are also foods to eliminate if you have hypothyroidism, such as those that contain goitrogens. Goitrogens are naturally occurring anti-nutrients in certain foods that interfere with production of thyroid hormones. Examples of foods to eliminate if you have hypothyroidism include:

• Unfermented soy products
• Corn
• Raw broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, and turnips
• Mustard, millet, pine nuts, peanuts, almonds
• Canola oil
• Peaches and strawberries

Note: Soy products can be consumed if fermented (miso, tempeh) and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts) are fine if they are fermented or lightly cooked, as it has been shown that these processes effectively remove the goitrogenic compounds.

It is also a good idea to avoid conventional dairy products, processed foods and flours, gluten, added sugars, caffeine, and alcohol.

Avoid radiation

The state of the world today makes it very difficult to avoid radiation. Whether it is the Fukushima disaster and cesium-137, or EMFs from wifi signals, cell phones, TVs, computers, microwaves, and medical imaging, radiation is a prevalent threat to everyone and especially those with thyroid problems.

To avoid and neutralize radiation as much as possible, consider the following:

• Limit exposure to common electronic devices such as cell phones and computers
• For devices that will continue to be used, consider technologies that neutralize their radiation
• When plausible, practice earthing (bare skin touching the earth’s surface such as feet) or use grounding technology
• Consume iodine rich foods that allow radioactive iodine to pass through the body, leaving it unharmed.

These tips will help significantly reduce the negative effects of radiation.

Eliminate xenoestrogens

Xenoestrogens are man-made estrogen mimicking molecules that are significant hormone disruptors. These chemicals and disruptors cause imbalances that eventually can cause thyroid related disorders such as hypothyroidism.

Examples of xenoestrogens, which should be avoided, include:

• Plastic containers
• Lining of canned food
• Styrofoam cups and containers
• Cosmetics and toiletries
• Agricultural chemicals
• Non-organic meat and dairy

In addition to all these steps, it is not a bad idea to cleanse the liver two to three times a year to help rid the body of these dangerous toxins.

Warning signs of iodine deficiency /iodinenews/2016-12-08-warning-signs-of-iodine-deficiency.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-warning-signs-of-iodine-deficiency.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Iodine is a trace element that the body needs for the production of thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland combines iodine with tyrosine, an amino acid, to manufacture the thyroid hormones. These hormones are needed for maintaining normal and healthy metabolism in all cells in the body. Consequently, a lack of iodine in one’s dietary intake could result in numerous thyroid-related health conditions and symptoms.

Iodine may also have some other important roles in the body unrelated to the thyroid — for example, it also seems to play a role in modulating estrogen’s effect on breast tissue — although more research is needed in these areas.

Symptoms of iodine deficiency

Sufficient iodine intake is needed for proper thyroid function and good thyroid health. And iodine deficiency is particularly harmful in pregnant ladies and newborn babies.

Some serious symptoms of iodine deficiency include:

• Impaired physical development; growth retardation
• Impaired mental development; intellectual disability
• Elevated risk of miscarriage
• Neonatal hypothyroidism
• Neonatal hyperthyrotropinemia
• Higher risk of infant mortality

Where iodine deficiency is present, hypothyroidism (an under-active thyroid) and/or goiter (thyroid gland enlargement) could also result. Low iodine levels in the blood causes thyroid gland cells to expand, eventually leading to the swelling of the entire gland under the neck.

Hypothyroidism is typically characterized by fatigue and lethargy, reduced tolerance to cold, constipation, weight gain, hair loss, dry skin, hoarseness and even depression. A person suffering from some or all of these symptoms could well be deficient in iodine to some degree.

Food sources of iodine

Seafoods contain high amounts of iodine. This includes seaweeds such as kelp.

Vegetables, meats and eggs also contain some iodine, although at lower amounts.

Some foods contain compounds known as goitrogens which actually block the body’s usage of iodine. Such foods include cabbage, mustard, turnips, peanuts, soybeans, millet, pine nuts, cassava root, broccoli and kale. However, as these foods are nutritious in their own ways, they probably should not be totally avoided. The good thing is that cooking usually deactivates the problematic compounds in these foods.

Beware of taking too much iodine

It should be noted that excessive consumption of iodine can backfire and adversely affect thyroid health — it can actually inhibit the synthesis of thyroid hormone. Excessive iodine intake can also cause acne eruptions. Michael Murray, ND, suggested capping daily intake at 500 mcg daily — this includes consumption via both foods and supplements.


Serious deficiency in iodine is now relatively rare in developed countries like the US because of the addition of iodine to table salt (iodized salt). However, research had suggested that the US population showed a trend of significantly dropping iodine intake from 1988 to 1994. A continuation of that trend could result in an increase of iodine deficiency conditions.

As such, if signs of iodine deficiency are present, including milder ones that characterize hypothyroidism such as tiredness, sluggishness, constipation, weight gain, dry skin, depression and constipation, it could be prudent to consult a nutritionist or suitably qualified health practitioner to get one’s iodine profile assessed.

Surprise! Doctors suddenly urge iodine supplementation for pregnant women to protect developing brains /iodinenews/2016-12-08-surprise-doctors-suddenly-urge-iodine-supplementation-for-pregnant-women-to-protect-developing-brains.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-surprise-doctors-suddenly-urge-iodine-supplementation-for-pregnant-women-to-protect-developing-brains.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Environmental Health has just announced something that seems totally out of character for conventional doctors: they’ve said that pregnant women are deficient in iodine and have urged widespread iodine supplementation to protect the development of their babies’ brains.

Iodine is, of course, an essential mineral for supporting fetal development, breast health and prostate health*. It’s crucial for healthy thyroid function, too, and Natural News has been teaching readers about the health benefits of iodine supplementation for over a decade.

Now it seems this information is finally being embraced by western medicine. Even Reuters, an anti-nutrition news service that often distorts medical news in favor of pharmaceuticals, is now reporting: (1)

Pregnant women should take an iodide-containing supplement to protect the brain development of their babies, according to the leading U.S. group of pediatricians. Iodine, which the body can get from iodide, is needed to make the thyroid hormones that are required for children’s brain development before and after birth.

The journal Pediatrics even published the iodine recommendations, breaking new ground for a science journal that rarely recommends mineral supplementation.

Get up to 1100 micrograms per day

The new recommendations say that pregnant or lactating women should get from 290 to 1100 micrograms of iodide each day, and they recommend the compound form of potassium iodide.

Yes, this is the exact same form of iodine used to protect the thyroid from radiation following a nuclear catastrophe or nuclear war. Iodine has many uses in the body, and iodine deficiency causes widespread symptoms and organ function problems.

Most woman not getting enough iodine

Mainstream medicine is finally coming around to the fact that most people in western society are chronically deficient in key lifesaving nutrients like iodine and vitamin D.

The percentage of the population that’s deficient is often far larger than you might suspect, too. Recommended daily intake levels of nutrients are kept artificially low by outmoded government standards, so even though this Council says one-third of U.S. women are iodine deficient, the real number is most likely over two-thirds. Iodine experts like Dr. David Brownstein might say it’s even higher.

Processed foods are almost universally deficient in iodine. In fact, my testing at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab has found processed foods to be surprisingly low in all metals and minerals, including toxic heavy metals like lead and cadmium. When foods are heavily refined and processed, it seems that all the elements are stripped out, both good and bad.

As a result, most Americans are eating “empty” foods devoid of any real nutrition. Over time, chronic deficiencies in iodine, selenium, zinc, vitamin D, magnesium and other nutrients become symptomatic. Eventually they get diagnosed as “cancer” or “heart disease” or “diabetes.” But instead of treating patients with nutrition, doctors usually just prescribe drugs or toxic treatments like chemotherapy.

If nutritional deficiencies were eliminated across the U.S. population, the health care system would all but collapse from the sudden lack of sickness. That’s why this information from the American Academy of Pediatrics Council is so refreshing — it’s finally a confirmation that iodine supplementation is crucial for the health of pregnant women and their babies.

“Obviously iodine is critical to the fetal and child brain,” said Dr. Loralei Thornburg, a pregnancy expert at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York. “Therefore having a diet that’s rich in iodine is critical.”

Sources of iodine and iodide

Potassium iodide is a rather expensive source of dietary iodine. Liquid iodine supplements such as “nascent iodine” offer a far more affordable form of iodine supplementation.

Laboratory tests conducted by Natural News show that every major brand of liquid iodine we tested was free from toxic heavy metals, without exception. Click here to read the lab test results.

The Natural News Store offers a nascent iodine tincture delivering 485,000 micrograms of iodine per bottle, making it one of the best values in iodine supplementation for your dollar. Click here for details on Original Nascent Iodine.

The world’s first cesium-capturing dietary supplement

Cesium Eliminator, Formula 137, is the world’s first dietary supplement that’s scientifically proven to bind with and capture cesium isotopes.*

Why cesium? Because Cesium-137 is the single most destructive radioisotope that threatens life following:

– A nuclear accident
– An act of nuclear terrorism
– An act of nuclear war

In all three scenarios, cesium-137 is the most devastating, long-term radioactive contaminant that threatens water supplies, food supplies and human populations. Cesium-137 has a 30-year half-life and persists in soils for 200 – 300 years, rendering those soils unusable for agriculture.

About Cesium-137, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control says:

Exposure to Cs-137 can increase the risk for cancer because of exposure to high-energy gamma radiation. Internal exposure to Cs-137, through ingestion or inhalation, allows the radioactive material to be distributed in the soft tissues, especially muscle tissue, exposing these tissues to the beta particles and gamma radiation and increasing cancer risk. (1)

And here’s what the EPA says about Cesium-137:

Cesium-137 that is dispersed in the environment, like that from atmospheric testing, is impossible to avoid… People may ingest cesium-137 with food and water, or may inhale it as dust. Like all radionuclides, exposure to radiation from cesium-137 results in increased risk of cancer. (2)

Cesium-137 is deadly, and that’s why this breakthrough product, Cesium Eliminator Formula 137, can be such a lifesaver in emergency situations.

The perfect preparedness companion with potassium iodide or nascent iodine

Many people have stockpiled iodine sources for strategic protection against radioisotopes of iodine such as Iodine-131. Nascent iodine protects the thyroid from radioactive iodine isotopes.

While nascent iodine (or potassium iodide) is a wise choice for preparedness against radiological disasters, it’s only a half-measure because it offers zero protection from radioactive cesium-137 fallout.

Cesium-137 fallout quickly contaminates open water sources such as rivers, streams and lakes. When those sources are used as public water supplies, the home tap becomes irradiated with cesium-137. Drinking radioactive water can be fatal.

Cesium Eliminator offers the best binding with cesium isotopes, providing a layer of defense that iodine-based products simply can’t address.* That’s why the well prepared are going to want to add Cesium Eliminator to their preparedness gear, possibly right alongside nascent iodine. (The two products should not be consumed simultaneously, however, because iodine can reduce Cesium Eliminator effectiveness. See for full details.)

Anyone in the business of preparedness, survival, “prepping” or public safety will want to consider becoming an affiliate for this innovative, breakthrough product. It begins shipping next week.

Four supplements that will benefit almost everyone /iodinenews/2016-12-08-four-supplements-that-will-benefit-almost-everyone.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-four-supplements-that-will-benefit-almost-everyone.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Less than 100 years ago, it wasn’t necessary for most Westerners to take nutrient supplements. Our soil was rich in essential minerals, our diets were packed with organic and home-grown food, and our environment contained far fewer health-destroying toxins.

Fast forward to the 21st century, however, and much has changed. Due to ongoing soil erosion, widespread pollution and much more, it is now difficult for many of us to obtain all of our essential nutrients from regular foods alone. Deficiencies in several important vitamins and minerals — deficiencies that were once unheard of — are now a pandemic in the Western world.

This article contains a list of four supplements which, if taken daily, can help correct many of the nutrient deficiencies we face today. Of course, other supplements might be required depending on your personal needs.

A nutrient-rich superfood

Perhaps the most important supplement we can take is a dedicated whole food supplement that contains a robust and well-rounded nutrient profile. Though opinions differ on which whole food is best for this purpose, you can’t go wrong with established superfoods such as Moringa oleifera, chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass or barley grass. Taking one or more of these foods in concentrated supplement form daily is an excellent natural alternative to commercial multivitamin tablets, which are usually comprised of synthetic ingredients that can inhibit absorption rates.


According to the American Chiropractic Association, between 68 and 80 percent of the United States population is estimated to be deficient in magnesium, an essential macromineral responsible for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.(1) Insufficient magnesium intake can result in chronic fatigue, muscle cramps, muscle weakness and, in the most serious instances, significant personality changes and heart failure.

While a wide variety of magnesium supplements are on the market today, most of them tend to work better as laxatives than actual sources of dietary magnesium. Magnesium glycinate is one of the best choices, since it is highly bioavailable and doesn’t contribute to loose stools.(2) For maximum benefits, take between 400 and 1,000 milligrams of it per day.(3)


Like magnesium, iodine is another essential mineral in which most of us are unknowingly deficient. In fact, unless you happen to live near the ocean and consume large amounts of fresh seafood, you’re probably seriously lacking in iodine. Iodine deficiencies can significantly reduce our thyroid hormone levels, causing us to retain water, gain weight, develop heart failure and more.(4)

Though many people experience good results with liquid iodine supplements such as Lugol’s iodine or nascent iodine, the most natural option is a seaweed supplement such as kelp or bladderwrack. Aim for between 500 and 1,000 micrograms of iodine per day.(5)


It is a well-known fact that the average Westerner consumes far more omega-6 fatty acids, which are commonly found in processed vegetable oils, than omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, our average omega-6 and omega-3 ratio is currently estimated to be 15:1 — far greater than the optimum 4:1. This imbalance promotes the pathogenesis of many serious diseases, including cancer and heart disease.(6)

To help correct this imbalance, it’s important that we both reduce our intake of foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids and increase our intake of omega-3 fatty acids. The best way to achieve the latter is to supplement our diet with good sources of the two preformed (and thus more potent) kinds of omega-3 fatty acids, namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

As most people are aware, high-quality fish oil is the king of EPA and DHA. For best results, aim for at least 1,000 milligrams of fish oil-derived EPA and DHA per day.(7)

Avoid hypothyroidism by avoiding the causes /iodinenews/2016-12-08-avoid-hypothyroidism-by-avoiding-the-causes.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-avoid-hypothyroidism-by-avoiding-the-causes.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 There are many pathways available for the regulation of the production and conversion of thyroid hormones. Consequently, there are a lot of opportunities for things to go wrong. A healthy thyroid relies on many factors, including, but not limited to, a healthy endocrine system, stable hormone levels, healthy and balanced gut flora, a healthy liver, properly functioning adrenals, healthy kidneys, and clean, healthy blood.


Candida overgrowth leads to a host of problems and eventually causes autoimmune disease. It also inhibits the body’s ability to properly digest and assimilate nutrition. An overabundance of Candida toxifies the blood in many different ways, which inhibits all gland activity.

Autoimmune disease

Hashimoto’s disease is a condition where the immune system attacks the thyroid. Autoimmune disorders occur when your immune system produces antibodies that attack your own tissues. This is typically due to a leaky gut as a result of an overabundance of Candida due to poor diet and/or antibiotic use.

Conventional Hypothyroidism Treatments

People with overactive thyroids are often treated with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid medications intended to normalize thyroid function. Often these treatments result in permanent hypothyroidism (permanent by conventional medical standards).

Thyroid Surgery

Removing a portion of your thyroid gland will diminish or halt hormone production. A person who wants to balance their hormones after thyroid removal surgery (or partial removal) needs to either take hormones for life or grow back their thyroid.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation used to treat cancers of the head and neck can do serious long-term damage to the thyroid gland.


Many medications contribute to hypothyroidism, including, but not limited to, medications for mental health, sleep medications, painkillers, and allergy medications.

Other Drugs (nicotine, caffeine, marijuana)

Any stimulant will wear out the thyroid and the adrenals. Many people consume a lot of caffeine over a period of time, eventually leading to adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism.

Marijuana disrupts the entire endocrine system, affecting all glandular hormone production. THC, in particular, lowers the immune system’s ability to fight infection, and can, with heavy use, lower thyroid hormonal output. Also, smoking anything causes the blood to become thick and toxic with free radicals and carcinogens that clog glands and hinder hormone production.

Iodine Deficiency

The thyroid gland converts iodine into thyroid hormones. Iodine is a trace mineral found primarily in seafood, seaweed, plants grown in iodine-rich soil, unrefined sea salt, and iodized table salt. Many people do not get enough iodine, and contrary to popular belief, this includes many people in developed countries.

Iodine from iodized salt is poorly absorbed and is not a healthy choice for raising iodine levels in the diet as refined table salt contributes to a host of health problems. Iodine is absolutely necessary for thyroid function, but too much iodine (especially iodine outside of food) can impair thyroid function as well.

Genetically Modified Foods

Eating genetically modified foods can trigger autoimmune conditions like Graves’ Disease or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. GMOs destroy the gut lining and lead to a host of problems.


Vaccines can wreck havoc on the endocrine system and cause autoimmune issues that can end up attacking the thyroid. Formaldehyde and heavy metal toxins such as mercury and aluminum are huge contributors to the hypothyroidism epidemic. Many studies have concluded that the ingredients in vaccines harm thyroid function.

Mercury Amalgam Fillings

A mouth full of mercury is usually synonymous with a problematic thyroid. Mercury wrecks havoc on the endocrine system, the nervous system, the brain, and well, the whole body. Amalgam fillings absolutely must be removed to restore normal, healthy thyroid function. See the first two sources for more oral health and this issue.


Even small amounts of fluoride lessen the pituitary gland’s ability to function, which in turn slows thyroid production. Larger amounts of fluoride, which most people do consume from tap water, disrupt the whole endocrine system and wreck havoc on hormone production. Fluoride consumption over time essentially slows the whole body down, including the brain.

Environmental Toxins

The thyroid is quite vulnerable to environmental toxins including, but not limited to, pesticides, herbicides, BPAs, jet fuel, perchlorates, thiocyanates, PCBs, lead, chlorine, fluorine, bromine, and many other chemicals we come in contact with that have been proven to cause hypothyroidism. We are bombarded with these chemicals due to the way we construct buildings, the way we produce products, the way we travel, and the way we grow food. Our only defense is high quality nutrition and avoiding toxin exposure through diet, chemical exposure in our environment, and absorption through the products we use for personal care.

Less Often…

Less often, hypothyroidism may result from congenital disease, a pituitary disorder, or pregnancy (due to lack of nutrition while pregnant).

Thyroid, Adrenals, and the Body’s Hormones

Weakened adrenal glands lead to the development of thyroid disorders. Adrenal fatigue is often, perhaps usually, the root cause of hypothyroidism.

What causes adrenal fatigue? Pretty much the same things that cause low thyroid output. When the adrenals are constantly being worked (due to stress, stimulants, and lack of sleep), an overabundance of cortisol produced by the adrenals will cause a host of problems and completely unbalance the hormone levels of the body. For instance, cortisol can also inhibit proper T3 utilization. When the adrenal glands are performing poorly for a long enough period of time, the body ends up in a state of catabolism; the body begins to break down. Eventually, the adrenals will “crash” and cortisol levels fall well below optimum levels. This is adrenal fatigue.

Truly healing the thyroid typically requires healing the adrenals or the entire endocrine system.

Be sure to read Kill Candida, because an unbalanced ecosystem is the most common precursor to disease, including hypothyroidism. The thyroid will not heal unless the digestive system is healed.

Innovators combine popular religious symbol with essential iodine to solve widespread nutrient deficiency /iodinenews/2016-12-08-innovators-combine-popular-religious-symbol-with-essential-iodine-to-solve-widespread-nutrient-deficiency.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-innovators-combine-popular-religious-symbol-with-essential-iodine-to-solve-widespread-nutrient-deficiency.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Idea makers from the Singaporean advertising agency Grey Group and the Neelvasant Medical Foundation and Research Centre in India have developed a new concept for addressing nutrient deficiency that combines the prevalence of a popular religious symbol with the discreet delivery method of transdermal supplementation.

You’ve probably seen them on many an Indian woman’s forehead – the ubiquitous bindi mark, or “dot,” that demarcates cultural heritage, religious affiliation, and in recent times popular fashion trends. And while the religious significance of the bindi dates back thousands of years, humanitarians have come up with another powerful use for it today: As a delivery tool for iodine supplementation.

Some 350 million Indians, according to reports, are at risk for iodine deficiency, which is the world’s leading cause of brain damage. Pregnant women who are iodine deficient are also at risk of bearing children with birth defects or having stillbirths.

Iodine deficiency is a growing problem, in other words, which is what prompted a team from Grey for Good, the philanthropic arm of the Grey Group, to develop what they’ve now dubbed as the “Life Saving Dot.” This revolutionary bindi has been coated in iodine, offering a tapered release of this essential mineral that’s is in short supply in many areas of the world.

Over the course of eight hours, each Life Saving Dot delivers up to 150 micrograms of iodine, the government recommended daily amount, directly through the skin. And a 30-day supply of Life Saving Dots is extremely affordable at just 10 rupees, or about 16 cents.

Since tens of millions of Indian women already affix bindis to their foreheads every day, the Life Saving Dot can be seamlessly integrated into one’s daily routine. And since it only contains iodine, there’s no risk of adverse events like with drugs or vaccines.

“Iodine deficiency disorder is a major nutritional problem and the Life Saving Dot is a simple, yet innovative preventive measure to a widespread problem in rural India,” says Ali Shabaz, chief creative officer of Grey Group Singapore.

“This program can be easily extended to reach a larger population of women in India who need this vital mineral for a healthier life.”

Iodine necessary to prevent hypothyroidism and resultant cascade of debilitating diseases

Iodine plays a critical role in regulating hormone production. The thyroid gland, which produces the hormones responsible for regulating energy levels and body weight, is dependent upon it for normal function. The thyroid gland produces two hormones in particular, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), that are essential in human metabolism.

Under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism) has become a major problem in many parts of the world, especially as halogenic substances like fluoride in water and bromide in refined flour increasingly promote iodine deficiency. These substances do this by occupying key receptors in the thyroid gland that are meant for iodine, inhibiting energy production and eventually triggering a host of debilitating health conditions.

“Approximately 70 percent of the body’s iodine is stored in the thyroid, following next by breast tissues, with the remainder distributed throughout every cell of the body,” explains Dr. Max Stanley Chartrand, Ph.D.

“Without adequate levels of iodine to meet the needs of the body, serious health issues develop over time … (including) a rise in learning disabilities and mental retardation in children, and breast cancer, obesity, fatigue, and a host of thyroid diseases among adults.”

ISIS terrorists planned to unleash a nuclear holocaust in Brussels… hundreds of nuclear facilities in USA now vulnerable thanks to total lack of border security /iodinenews/2016-12-08-isis-terrorists-planned-to-unleash-a-nuclear-holocaust-in-brussels-hundreds-of-nuclear-facilities-in-usa-now-vulnerable-thanks-to-total-lack-of-border-security.html /iodinenews/2016-12-08-isis-terrorists-planned-to-unleash-a-nuclear-holocaust-in-brussels-hundreds-of-nuclear-facilities-in-usa-now-vulnerable-thanks-to-total-lack-of-border-security.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 We’ve just learned from the Daily Mail that the ISIS terrorist bombers in Brussels planned to attack a nuclear power plant. The terrorists had been staking out the home of the nuke plant director, whom they planned to kidnap to gain access to the power plant.

“The Brussels terrorists were preparing an attack on a nuclear power plant and had recorded 12 hours of reconnaissance footage,” reports the online paper. “Hours of film of the home of the Research and Development Director of the Belgian Nuclear Programme were discovered in an apartment in Brussels raided by anti-terrorist police following the attack in Paris.”

What’s the goal of all this? It’s obvious: The terrorists hoped to cause a nuclear meltdown in Brussels and unleash a nuclear holocaust in the heart of the EU. And according to the politically correct delusional bureaucrats running governments and media outlets, this is all our fault because we did something to make the terrorists angry. (Yes, indeed, the terrorists are never responsible for their own actions… at least, according to the lunatic mainstream media.)

Open borders allows nuclear terrorists to walk right into Europe and the USA

Thanks to the complete lack of border security in America — due to deranged, insane politicians who desperately need more illegal voters to enter the country — we also know that ISIS terrorists have already entered the USA and are likely planning the same sort of attacks here.

ISIS terror cells operate with full autonomy, making them almost impossible to find and interdict. Each independent cell decides on its own what targets and method to pursue, and they’re all trained in the art and science of deploying high explosives, identifying structural weak points of buildings and bridges, and the art of social deception. They enter the USA and European countries under the guise of being “refugees” or “migrants,” but once established in the target country, they begin gathering reconnaissance intel on their intended targets while amassing destructive devices to carry out their terrorism acts.

Meanwhile, totally delusional establishment bureaucrats in America steadfastly refuse to acknowledge that radical Islam even exists. The entire political left of the United States, for example, remains in a shocking state of denial over the rise of radical Islamist terrorism all across the world. They are truly blinded to the dangers of Jihad because of their delusional political leanings.

Any person who dares mention the radical Islam commonality among so many recent terrorist attacks is maliciously attacked by the liberal P.C. police who label him an “Islamaphobe.”

Why the threat of nuclear terrorism puts us all at risk

It all makes me wonder just how many innocent people have to die before the political establishment will admit that radical Islamic terrorists are using open borders policies (and “refugee” status) to walk right into the very countries they aim to destroy.

Will it take a nuclear holocaust before the delusional bureaucrats in Washington dare admit that border security is necessary to protect all Americans from acts of terrorism?

Nuclear terrorism is the most devastating form of terrorism because it unleashes radioactive fallout that has the potential to kill or sicken millions of people in the target country. Some of the radioactive isotopes unleashed by a nuclear meltdown persist in the environment for millions of years, while others (such as cesium-137) unleash intense radiation that contaminates soils and food for 200 – 300 years.

Because radical Islamic terrorists seek whatever method causes the most destruction to their intended target, nuclear terrorism is high on their list, and kidnapping a nuclear plant operator could allow them to gain access to nuclear power plant secrets or security protocols that make it easy for them to compromise those power plants.

As we all learned from the Fukushima meltdown — which the mainstream media covered up for years, refusing to admit a meltdown took place — all a terrorist has to do to achieve a nuclear fuel “criticality event” (i.e. meltdown) is cut off the primary power and backup power sources feeding the cooling pumps. From there, the laws of physics take over and a meltdown is a simple matter of cause and effect.

U.S. nuclear power plants are built with containment buildings (unlike the Chernobyl facility in Ukraine), but terrorists could easily compromise that structure with the very same high explosive materials they just used in Brussels. The result would be the uncontained release of deadly radioactive material, blown across the continental United States and sweeping across numerous high population cities that are downwind.

No effort in Washington to protect the U.S. border

In the wake of the ISIS terror attacks in Brussels, more and more Americans are waking up to the necessity of protecting U.S. borders against terrorists entering the country by simply walking across the border.

Just yesterday, Piers Morgan even stated that Donald Trump is starting to make a lot of sense. When terrorists keep walking right into western nations and slaughtering dozens of innocent people with each terror cell activation, even the most delusional denialists eventually start to come around and realize that national security requires border security.

My primary fear in all this is that the delusional P.C. culture of the political left in America is so detached from reality that they will never see the need for border security… not even after their own cities are devastated out by nuclear terrorism. It’s no surprise that ISIS terrorists deliberately choose targets that maximize casualties, and in the realm of nuclear terrorism, the most obvious targets are nuclear power plants that would rain down radioactive death upon cities like New York or Chicago.

Right now, potentially hundreds of autonomous ISIS terror cells are already positioned inside the United States. The Obama administration has all but invited them to walk right in and set up shop in America’s cities. He even seems to turn a blind eye to their terrorism by praising Islam at every opportunity and refusing to even entertain the idea that radical Islam breeds terrorists. And now they live among us, plotting their targets like they did in Paris and Brussels, waiting for “activation day” when they unleash mass death and destruction upon nations that have become utterly delusional and incompetent on this issue of border security.

ISIS terrorists are laughing all the way to Hell on all this, rolling on the floor in disbelief that their own cultural enemies keep inviting them to walk right into the very cities they are aiming to destroy. The sad truth of the matter is that even if someone like Donald Trump gets elected and literally builds a giant wall across the U.S. southern border, it may already be too late. The terrorists are already here. They walked right in during the Obama administration which repeatedly refused to enforce commonsense border security. They already have their training, their targets and their Jihadi motivations. They operate in a society of delusional political correctness that has granted them total immunity from criticism and law enforcement profiling. The terrorists have become the new untouchables in a society that’s drowning in political correctness and hyper-sensitivity to any true statement that accurately describes the religious origins of extremist terrorists.

Both America and the EU, it seems, have entered into a suicide pact that can only result in their own destruction at the hands of extremist religious zealots who now have the training, know-how and infrastructure to literally unleash a nuclear holocaust upon us all.

Have you checked your iodine supply lately?

Given the attempted targeting of a nuclear facility in Brussels, it’s important to check your iodine supplies and make sure you have enough on hand in case nuclear terrorism takes place near you.

Nascent iodine helps protect the thyroid from radiation poisoning unleashed by nuclear fallout. Iodine-131, in particular, is highly radioactive and tends to concentrate in thyroid tissues, burning out this crucial organ and leading to lifelong health problems. (It has a half-life of roughly 7 or 8 days, so it dissipates quickly but is extremely dangerous immediately after a fallout event.)

The Natural News Store offers a laboratory-verified, ultra clean, high potency iodine supplement that delivers an incredible 1100 servings per bottle. You can find a single bottle at this link, or save another 8% or so on this three bottle pack.

In addition to helping protect your thyroid from radiation fallout, iodine is also well known to play a crucial supporting role in breast health and prostate health.*

Iodine is also an element in potassium iodide tablets used by the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies. Both potassium iodide and nascent iodine are made from the Iodine element, and they both deliver crucial iodine to your thyroid gland.

No matter where you get your iodine or iodide, make sure you have some on hand.

In a nuclear catastrophe, you will not be able to find iodine or iodide because it will all be sold out just like what happened after Fukushima in 2011. The supply lines are very thin on iodine, and inventories will be wiped out overnight in an actual disaster.

If you don’t have iodine on hand BEFORE a nuclear terrorism event, you likely won’t be able to get it at all.

Be safe. Be prepared. Get some iodine now at the Natural News Store, offering the cleanest, most concentrated and most laboratory tested iodine sold anywhere.
