THOSE EVIL HALIDES AND YOUR THYROID
(CHLORINE, FLUORIDE, BROMINE)
Because FLUORIDE, Bromine, and Chlorine are so closely related to each other on the Periodic Table, they can get substituted for Iodine. This is not good, as it destroys thyroid function. If you want to do some good research on the topic, just Google "Thyroid, Fluoride, Chlorine, Bromine". Prepare to be shocked.
On top of this, one of Chlorine's main purposes is to kill bacteria. That is its very purpose for being put into the water supply in the first place. This is problematic when you remember that the GUT (intestines) contains ten times the number of bacteria as there are cells in your body. These bacteria help account for the fact that 80% of your entire immune system is contained in your gut (HERE). Destroy bacteria (Dysbiosis), and you ruin your immune system. ANTIBIOTICS are a known cause of this sort of destruction. So are halogens. Find out where you are getting exposed to halogens and put a stop to it today.
If you have chlorinated / fluoridated water, get a shower filter and some way to filter it out of your drinking water. Your thyroid will love you for it!
