    People determined to have low thyroid function (hypothyroidism) who were given desiccated thyroid by Broda Barnes, MD, PhD and followed for years, had 94% fewer heart attacks -- an 18-fold reduction -- than predicted by the Framingham Study, Mark Starr, MD notes in his wonderful book Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic (p. 34). Heart Attacks Reduced

    Heart attacks reduced 18-fold; 4 heart attacks whereas 72 were predicted

    The Framingham Study predicted that among Dr. Broda Barnes’ patients there should have been 72 heart attacks, however, there were only 4.


    Broda Barnes, MD, PhD

    Broda Barnes, MD, PhD an expert on thyroid, dedicated his career to this

    Broda Barnes, MD, PhD was an expert on thyroid and wrote several eye-opening books about it.


    Dr. Barnes First Book

    Dr. Barnes first book : ‘Heart Attack Rareness in Thyroid-Treated Patients’

    “In 1972, after 22 years of his ongoing study, Dr. Barnes published the results of his work in a book, ‘Heart Attack Rareness in Thyroid-Treated Patients’.”
    – Mark Starr, MD, Hypothyroidism Type 2, p. 34


    Dr. Barnes Second Book

    Dr. Barnes second book : ‘Solved: The Riddle of Heart Attacks’

    “In 1976… Dr. Barnes published another groundbreaking book, ‘Solved: The Riddle of Heart Attacks.”
    – Mark Starr, MD, Hypothyroidism Type 2, p. 34


    Dr. Barnes Third Book

    Dr. Barnes third book : ‘ Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness’

    In 1976, Dr. Barnes also wrote the book called Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness.


    Dr. Barnes Did NOT Control For Other Risk Factors

    Dr. Barnes did NOT attempt to control cholesterol, smoking, exercise, etc

    “Dr. Barnes purposefully did NOT attempt to control cholesterol, smoking, exercise, [etc].”
    – Mark Starr, MD, Hypothyroidism Type 2, p. 35


    Dr. Barnes Prediction

    Dr. Barnes predicted the massive effort to control heart attacks with cholesterol drugs, blood pressure drugs, diabetes drugs would FAIL

    “Dr. Barnes predicted that our massive effort to control heart attacks would fail unless we recognized and properly treated hypothyroidism.”
    – Mark Starr, MD, Hypothyroidism Type 2, p. 35


    Mainstream Medicine Hasn’t Recognized This

    Mainstream medicine has NOT recognized that the answer to heart attacks is correcting hypothyroidism

    “Despite the publication of eight editions [of Dr. Barnes book, Solved: The Riddle of Heart Attacks], mainstream medicine continues to dismiss his irrefutable work.”
    – Mark Starr, MD, Hypothyroidism Type 2, p. 35



    Desiccated Thyroid vs Synthetic Thyroid Hormones

    Type 2 Hypothyroidism : Blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal

    Dr. Starr also notes that that desiccated thyroid (Armour) is much more effective than synthetic thyroid hormones.

    Here is what he wrote on page 164.

    “A recent book by Sanford Siegal, DO, MD, entitled “Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat” lends additional credence to the thyroid epidemic.”

    “Dr. Siegal specialized in weight loss.”

    “He… asked if I would be… on his referral list… because I was one of only several hundred doctors who prescribed the medication.”

    “In over 40 years of practice, Dr. Siegal found in treating thousands of patients that desiccated thyroid (Armour) was much more effective than synthetic thyroid hormones.”

    “Dr. Zondek also reported the superior efficacy of desiccated thyroid over synthetic thyroid hormone in the treatment of the ‘obese form’ of hypothyroidism in his 1926 textbook, Diseases of the Endocrine Glands.”

    “He had not changed his opinion by the time the forth edition was published in 1944.”



    Type 1 vs Type 2 Hypothyroidism

    Type 2 Hypothyroidism : Blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal

    Type 2 hypothyroidism is different than Type 1 hypothyroidism, which is what most people are referring to when they say hypothyroidism.

    With Type 2 hypothyroidism, blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal, however the body is resistant to it.

    This is similar to the difference between Type 1 diabetes where the body fails to make enough insulin, and Type 2 diabetes, where the body makes enough insulin, but the body is resistant to it.


    Blood Tests Do Not Detect Type 2 Hypothyroidism

    Type 2 Hypothyroidism Cannot Be Detected with a Blood Test

    With Type 2 hypothyroidism, because blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal, it is cannot be detected by a standard blood test for thyroid function.

    “My research shows that many chronic illnesses including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, mental illnesses, Alzheimer’s disease, and the explosion of childhood illnesses are largely attributable to Type 2 hypothyroidism,” writes Dr. Starr.

    “Type 1 Hypothyroidism is defined as failure of the thyroid gland to produce sufficient amounts of necessary to maintain normal blood levels of those hormones and normal blood levels of the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).”

    “Type 2 Hypothyroidism is defined as [a] resistance to thyroid hormones at the cellular level.”

    “[In Type 2 hypothyroidism,] Normal amounts of thyroid hormones and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) are detected by the blood tests therefore, blood tests do not detect Type 2 hypothyroidism.”



    Quotes about Dr. Starrs book

    “I believe everyone needs to review Mark Starrs book.

    “He has a vital message to share about the many people who do not realize they have low thyroid, because standard thyroid tests do not show it.

    “Mark Starrs dedication to research, and his devoted study with the old masters, have made him an international expert on thyroid and iodine.”

    —Dr. Garry Gordon, Co-Founder of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM)

    “This is an astonishing book revealing the cause and successful treatment for obesity, heart attacks, depression, diabetes, strokes, headaches, chronic fatigue and many more. His in-depth research and discussion of how environmental toxins can interfere with thyroid hormones is groundbreaking and enlightening for us all.”

    —Robban Sica, MD

    “This is the most significant compilation of medical research ever published in the area of hypothyroidism.

    “Over a century of irrefutable scientific evidence is presented in a concise and readable format for laypeople and doctors alike.”
    —Mark Starr, MD writing about his own book
