Fluoride replaces iodine in the thyroid gland (causing hypothyroidism).
– Study confirms that fluoride causes weight gain and depression
Iodine in bread has been replaced by bromide (at least in the US), which also replaces fluoride in the thyroid gland.
Increased levels of radiation also hit the thyroid hard. Glyphosate and other toxins certainly play a role.
“Fluoride causes more human cancer, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.”

Problem (pretty much) solved.
– Thyroid Cancer Rates Triple, and Scientists Look for Cause:
Thyroid cancer rates are rising faster than any other cancer in the United States, a new study found: Between 1975 and 2013, the number of thyroid cancer cases diagnosed yearly more than tripled.
The numbers have prompted many epidemiologists to caution in recent years that the increase in cases is really just a matter of doctors catching more cases. This includes cases that are slow-growing and that would be unlikely to cause symptoms that affect a person’s life. Doctors refer to the diagnosis of cases like this as the “overdiagnosis” of a condition.
But in the new analysis, scientists argued that the alarming rise isn’t just due to improvements in detecting thyroid cancer. [10 Do’s and Don’ts to Reduce Your Risk of Cancer]
