Thyroid Cancer Rates Triple, and Scientists Look for Cause

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Iodine in bread has been replaced by bromide (at least in the US), which also replaces fluoride in the thyroid gland.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.

And then:

“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]

The Borax Conspiracy – How the Arthritis Cure has been stopped

I’ve posted this article before.

This article mentions a high dose for strong fungal/Candida problems such as autoimmune diseases, cancer or dementia.

From the article:

“Borax, similar to the equally endangered Lugol’s iodine solution, can also be used to remove accumulated fluoride and heavy metals from the body (14). Fluoride not only causes bones to deteriorate, but also the pineal gland to calcify and the thyroid to become underactive.”

Bread, eggs, milk and meat contain practically NO boron!!!

Meat contains 0,04 mg boron per 100 g.

Milk contains 0,03 mg boron per 100 g.

Eggs contain 0,07 mg boron per 100 g.

Corn-salad-Valerianella-locusta

Corn Salad (Valerianella Locusta) contains 27,5 – 35 mg boron per 100 g.

Quinces 8,6 -17,4 mg per 100 g.

Dandelion 8,5 -16 mg per 100 g.

Beetroot 2,1 mg per 100 g.

Lapacho contains high amounts of boron.

I see borax as a short-term cure and consider it to be of the utmost importance to rely on a healthy diet as long-term cure and prevention of any and all disease.

If you are drinking green vegetable juices (Carrots, beets, spinach, salad, cucumber etc.) and include herbs like nettles, dandelion, goatweed, chickweed, then you are bombarding the body with vital nutrients in the best and readily available form.

The Borax Conspiracy – How the Arthritis Cure has been stopped:

Walter Last

You may not be able to imagine that borax, this humble insecticide and laundry detergent, has the potential of singlehandedly bringing down our entire economic system. But you do not need to worry, the danger has been recognised and the necessary steps are already being taken to defuse the situation. I will start with the basics and you will understand what I mean as the story unfolds.

Borax is a naturally occurring mineral commonly mined from dried salt lakes, and is the source of other manufactured boron compounds. The main deposits are in California and Turkey. Chemical names are sodium tetraborate decahydrate, disodium tetraborate decahydrate, or simply sodium borate. This means it contains four atoms of boron as its central feature combined with two sodium atoms and ten molecules (or sometimes less) of crystallisation water – decahydrate means 10 water molecules, pentahydrate 5, and anhydrate or anhydrous borax means no crystallisation water; chemically it is all the same.

Borax is commonly sold as technical or agricultural grade with 99 to 99.5% minimum purity. Potential impurities consist of sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride, bicarbonate, carbonate, sulphate and phosphate but not toxic or heavy metals. This grade includes the borax commonly used as household cleaner. Pharmaceutical grade is not noticeably purer or better.

Fukushima medical survey confirms 14 new child thyroid cancer cases

Fukushima medical survey confirms 14 new child thyroid cancer cases:

The number of child thyroid cancers discovered in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster has reached 131, with the latest panel review adding 14 to the list of those suffering from the deadly disease, along with dozens of new suspected cases.
After the latest review of the ongoing second round of medical checkups conducted on almost 300,000 children who were aged 18 or younger at the time of the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in March 2011, the prefecture-run program announced that a total 131 people have now been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

TEPCO Admits Cover-Up Of Fukushima Meltdown
Naomi Hirose, TEPCO president

TEPCO Admits Cover-Up Of Fukushima Meltdown:

Back in 2011, whenever anyone accused Japan’s energy company Tepco and government of covering up the scale and severity of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, they were promptly accused of being conspiracy theorists. After all, the “argument” went, no serious organization would dare to do that, especially when millions of people’s lives were at stake.

Today, over five years later, we got confirmation that yet another “conspiracy theory” was just another “fact”, when the president of TEPCO, Naomi Hirose, admitted on NHK that his company concealed the reactor meltdowns at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant immediately after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Hirose also confirmed that TEPCO ordered not to use the word “core meltdown” when referring to what happened at the crippled plant. In fact, the utility did not officially admit the meltdowns until more than 2 months after the accident.  The announcement came a week after a scandalous report claimed that Japanese government and TEPCO hushed up the tragedy.

“I would say it was a cover-up,” Hirose told a news conference. “It’s extremely regrettable.”

Chernobyl On The Hudson Causing a Massive Spike in Thyroid Cancer

Chernobyl On The Hudson Causing a Massive Spike in Thyroid Cancer:

Buchanan, New York is a town in the United States where tens of thousands of people have been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer, and it sits just 35 miles from New York City. Also nearby is the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, which is situated on the Hudson River and serves the electricity needs of approximately 2 million people, with two working reactors which have operated since the mid 1970s.

For years, the public has been told that nuclear power is a safe and clean alternative to other fuels, but the people of Indian Point and surrounding areas know those claims are untrue, and it appears they are now paying the price of all the failed promises of nuclear energy.

Thyroid Cancer rates, in and around this area, have seen a huge spike in the last 15 years. Some say as many as 20,000 thyroid cancer cases.

Fukushima prefecture has been conducting regular checkups of over 360,000 people who were in Fukushima in March 2011 and were age 18 or under when the nuclear crisis struck. As WSJ reported in August, a study by researchers in Fukushima prefecture found 57 minors in the prefecture have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer so far and another 46 are showing symptoms that suggest they may also have the disease. Today, as The Japan Times reports, four more children are suspected of suffering from thyroid cancer in the latest survey bringing the total to 107 out of 385,000 now surveyed. This is dramatically higher than the normal “between 5 to 11 cases per million people,” that Okayama University professor Toshihide Tsuda cites for national statistics between 1975 and 2008.

Four more children are suspected of suffering from thyroid cancer in the latest survey on the possible health impact of the 2011 triple meltdown at Tepco’s wrecked Fukushima No. 1 plant, sources said Tuesday.

THERE IS NO SAFE AMOUNT OF RADIATION …. ANY DOSE IS AN OVERDOSE

Stolen Nuclear Material Heading into US

CHAPTER FOUR:  HEALTH DAMAGE (NuclearReader):

THIS CHAPTER CLARIFIES THAT THERE IS NO SAFE AMOUNT OF RADIATION.  ANY DOSE IS AN OVERDOSE.

In high, short doses like the Hiroshima bomb blast, radiation primarily causes direct damage to the nucleus of cells where the genes that control the functioning of the cell are located.  This high level radiation causes an alteration in the structure of the DNA, the chromosomes that carry the genetic blueprint, resulting in incorrect structure of new cells.  Damaged DNA tends to reproduce new cells very rapidly – becoming what we call cancer.  In contrast, low doses acting continuously over time produce their damage indirectly through the generation of free radicals that destroy cell-membranes, hundreds to thousands of times more efficiently than might be expected in calculations related to high-dose damage.  So the everyday amount of radiation that is released as part of the normal operation of the world’s 400 nuclear power plants is a very grave concern.  Nuclear power plants must have releases in order to function, and these releases, even though they may be partially filtered, disperse radiation into our air and drinking water, onto farmland and into our food.
