Oncologists Rush to Remove Thyroid Glands Before Certain of Cancer

Cancer Doctors Con Patients

In 2011, the international media jumped on the news that the president of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. That led to the surgical removal of her thyroid gland, called a thyroidectomy.

 

Problem is, it takes a thyroidectomy to determine if there really is cancer in the thyroid gland. So, take it out and see. Oops, then the media celebrated her not having cancer after all. So it became “don’t cry for me Argentina” and the media expressed the Argentinian sigh of relief.

 

But Presidente Cristina did really have something to cry about after all. Like many who have had a thyroidectomy, she would have to be on synthetic pharmaceuticals for the rest of her life as long as she continued depending on mainstream medicine. Not a healthy situation. (more…)

Statin Drugs Linked to Thyroid Cancer in Women

Statin Drugs Linked to Thyroid Cancer in Women

So, you have been told to ‘lower your cholesterol’ with drugs. But could it be causing cancer?

A concerning new study published in the journal Clinical Epidemiology[i] has found that “statin use is associated with thyroid cancer in female patients.”

Researchers hypothesized that in the presence of the female dominant hormone estradiol – a form of estrogen – statins are ineffective at exhibiting their long claimed ‘cancer-protective properties.’

A 36 Year Old Female With Hypothyroidism After Thyroidectomy For Thyroid Cancer

Lisa, a 36-year-old model and actress, arrived in my office and told me her story. Ever since her thyroidectomy for cancer, she has had symptoms of severe fatigue, muscle pain, hair loss, and dry skin. The small dose of Synthroid prescribed by her endocrinologist didn’t seem to be helping. (more…)

Thyroid Cancer & Iodine

http://thyroidcancersurvivor.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/thyroid_scan1.jpg

Medical ignorance is epidemic and nowhere is this more evident than in how contemporary medicine views and treats thyroid cancer. Overtreatment of thyroid cancer with radioactive iodine is rampant even though there is substantial uncertainty about the indications for radioactive iodine for thyroid cancer. Radioactive iodine absorbed by the thyroid can injure the gland.

There was a large increase in the proportion of thyroid cancer patients receiving radioactive iodine between 1990 and 2008 even though radioactive iodine is a cause of thyroid cancer. Between 1990 and 2008, the percentage of patients treated with radioactive iodine climbed from 40 to 56 percent, and hospitals varied widely in their use of iodine. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, there are more than 40,000 new cases of thyroid cancer every year in the U.S.—a number that’s been climbing steadily. (more…)

Thyroid medical scans use radioactive dye, now linked to permanent thyroid damage

Cardiac computed tomography (CT) and other medical scans sometimes involve injecting a radioactive iodide dye into the bloodstreams of patients in order to highlight the produced images. But a new study published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine has revealed that this radioactive dye can cause permanent thyroid damage, as well as cancer. (more…)

Aqua Horribilis

Back in March 2008, I wrote about the issue of pharmaceutical drugs in your drinking water. It wasn’t really a surprise to anyone who was actually keeping abreast of the issue as these drugs had first been detected as early as the 1970’s. But 2008 was the first time a major news source had decided to report on the story — thus bringing it the forefront of debate. Government regulators and mainstream scientists, however, were able to push the story off the radar by claiming, “Yes, there are pharmaceutical drugs in the water, but at levels so low that they present no threat to the public at large.” And unfortunately, although we had strong reason to believe the government argument wasn’t true, we had little data to support the contention. Well, now it’s been four years since that story first broke — and disappeared —  and it’s time to take another look, because now we have new data to look at. (more…)

Why more thyroid cancer? Fluoridated water, x-rays, and radiation are all to blame

According to a recent report in USA Today, cases of thyroid cancer have risen 6.5 percent over the past several years, and many medical experts are at a loss for explaining why this is occurring. But mainstream science is ignoring all the most obvious factors that contribute to the disease — fluoride chemicals added to drinking water; excessive medical x-rays; and radiation from cells phones, computers, naked body scanners, and nuclear disasters like Fukushima.
