For whatever reason: the authorities (or a few giant assholes) have tended for years to prescribe iodine in excess. The consequence: more and more people react with allergies!

The authorities (respectively a few brainwashed armchair farts) have enforced that there is artificially added iodine in frozen products, eggs, cheese, milk, meat and bread. Many people have strong reactions of which neither they nor the family doctor are rarely aware:

The artificially added iodine in food causes acne, cardiac arrhythmia and insomnia in many people. So it doesn't have to be your supervisor who is causing you these problems ...

Farmers consciously or unconsciously administer iodine with so-called nutritional salts that they put in front of their chickens. Most foods today contain artificial iodine. But hardly anyone is aware of this.

The fact is that large animals such as cows, cattle, calves and pigs eat iodized concentrated feed every day; enriched with iodized nutrient salts. The animals excrete a part of it through their urine. However, a really significant amount of iodine ends up in the milk we drink and the meat we eat.

In addition, practically all bread contains iodine. All bread from the wholesalers as well as the bread from the bakery contains iodine. Damn pig! Artificially added iodine is found in frozen products, butter, cheese, sausages and canned food. Since iodized salt is much cheaper than normal salt, practically every food producer integrates it.

The reason for salt iodization in the past was to prevent goitre and weak-mindedness. The iodized salt used today often leads to hyperthyroidism. And, considering what functions the thyroid gland performs, it's not surprising that thousands of affected individuals are totally confused about it.

Ready for a little excursion into anatomy ? The thyroid gland is a hormonal gland. In humans, it is located below the thyroid cartilage in front of the trachea. Its main function is to store iodine and produce the iodine-containing thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine, as well as the peptide hormone calcitonin.

The iodine-containing thyroid hormones are produced by the follicular epithelial cells of the thyroid gland (thyrocytes) and play an important role in energy metabolism and growth of individual cells and the organism as a whole. Calcitonin is produced by the parafollicular or C cells of the thyroid gland. It inhibits bone resorption by incorporating calcium and phosphate into the bone and by inhibiting osteoclasts, which in the activated state lead to a reduction in bone substance.

The thyroid gland is the starting point for numerous diseases which, among other things, can lead to disturbances in hormone metabolism and cause hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Iodine deficiency, which used to be common in the Western world, could cause goiter (goiter) or nodules.

Professor J. Hengstmann, thyroid specialist at the Berlin clinic, points out that iodized foods can cause hypothyroidism and even trigger Graves' disease. Patients then suffer from lack of drive, weight gain and hair loss, and feel weak and ill. Prof. Jürgen Hengstmann estimates that about 15% of the population suffers from this iodization.

However, Dr. Weigelt of Heidelberg University Women's Hospital estimates that a good 60% of the population is affected. The trained orthodox physician and homeopath rightly fears that most people and their doctors do not attribute the problems mentioned to iodized foods.

How could they?

Furthermore, it is suspected that this type of iodization causes hyperactivity in children, as well as joint pain, migraine attacks, and skin problems.

The amount of iodine needed varies from person to person: one thyroid gland needs less, the other more iodine to be able to produce enough hormones for the metabolism; an extremely sensitive system that controls the growth and division of cells as well as the heat production of the body.

Tip: If possible, avoid iodized salt and foods with added iodine! Next time you go shopping, take a little more time and read the fine print.
