Iodine is necessary to make thyroid hormone and protects against breast cancer as noted in this video clip of Joan Mathews Larson, PhD.
T3 thyroid hormone contains 3 atoms of iodine.
T4 thyroid hormone contains for 4 atoms of iodine.
T4, which is sometimes called the storage form of thyroid hormone, is converted into T3, the more active form, when an enzyme removes one of the atoms of iodine converting T4 into T3. Enzymes are like chemical scissors.
Dr. Larson notes that iodine protects against breast cancer by converting dangerous estrogens (estrone and estadial) into a safe estrogen (estrial).
If you look at the bottom of the first slide, she notes that cancer-causing estrogens can’t be converted into safe estrogen without iodine and vitamin B6.
The slide also notes that alcohol destroys both iodine and vitamin B6, which increases the risk of breast cancer.
Quoting from a book by David Brownstein, MD called “Iodine, why you need it, why you can’t live without it”, she notes that breast cancer occurs in 1 out of every 7 women, whereas it used to occur in only 1 out of every 20 women.
This occurred after 1975 when the bromide replaced iodine as an additive in breads and pastries.
She notes that anyone taking a thyroid supplement should also take iodine/iodide.
She notes this will also allow you to reduce your dose of thyroid.
This was noted by Joan Mathews Larson, PhD in a speech she gave in September 2007.
For 30 years, Joan Mathews Larson, PhD has been treating addiction, anxiety and depression with natural supplements in order to correct the underlying biochemical problems which cause these conditions.
Dr. Larson is the author of “7 Weeks to Sobriety”, “Depression Free”, and “7 Weeks to Emotional Healing”.
