How Water Fluoridation Promotes Thyroid Impairment and How to Treat


If you are suffering from thyroid dysfunction, it is possible that the water you drink and the oral care products you use are the cause of this health condition. In fact, medicinal researchers are discovering that fluoride, a chemical element of fluorine useful for preventing tooth decay and strengthen weak bone is the cause of several health conditions including thyroid dysfunction. (S1)Exposure to this chemical happens on a regular basis since it is useful in drinking water sources to kill harmful bacteria and again, in your daily oral care products. Some of you may even be on fluoride tablets due to recommendation from your doctor to help with the prevention or treatment of osteoporosis. If you are suffering from thyroid issues, it is time to speak with your doctor about possible treatment and it is time to switch your water source and oral care products to fluoride free kinds.

What is thyroid dysfunction?

The thyroid is the gland that influences all metabolism processes with your body.  When damage occurs to it such as fluoride poisoning hormone production does not occur properly and sometimes you can end up suffering from cancer or an enlarged gland commonly known as a goiter. Sometimes due to lack of poor hormone production from your thyroid, failing to function properly you can suffer from hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. These common thyroid issues are known as thyroid dysfunction, meaning the thyroid is not working the way it needs to in order to keep you healthy.

Sometimes radioiodine scanning and uptake testing is necessary in order to determine what is wrong with a dysfunction thyroid, which will occur in the nuclear medicine department of your local hospital or clinic. You may even be requested to have a thyroid biopsy done to determine if what you have is actually cancer or just a poorly functioning thyroid.
