Thyroid cancer has become alarmingly common and boasts a wide range of age groups as
victims of its insidious start. Whereas thyroid cancer used to be called a cancer you “die with,
not from,” scientists are now scrambling to find a connection between the heavy incidence of
carcinoma and the effects of chemicals we consume.
Research has focused most intensely on the direct connection of fluoride in tap water as a
cancer causing agent; surprised? Isn’t fluoride what the dentist pushes as a necessary additive
to toothpaste and dental care? Weren’t we told that without this beneficial element, our teeth
will decay into incompetent crushers leaving you with only a selection of soft foods to mush
around your mouth? In fact, the dental agencies were pushing for the inclusion of fluoride
into bottled water after the trend took hold, to offset the lack of ingested fluoride through tap
Now science has shown the mechanism of fluoride behind the propagation of thyroid cancer
to be a true link. In thyroid cancer patients, there is an increase in thyroid stimulating hormone
under which thyroid cancer cells flourish. It turns out that fluoride has the same, if not more
profound, effect as thyroid stimulating hormone on cancer cells. So by insisting we incorporate
this into our diet for teeth’s sake, we ensure at least thyroid dysfunction, which currently runs
rampant across the country, and also better our odds at getting thyroid cancer.
So before your penny pinching ways make you balk at the few bucks a case of bottled water
costs, know that you may be getting more for your money by buying your way out of cancer
causing agents found in the free stuff.Bottled Water: Fluoride Free Cancer Fighter?
