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…)
A nonprofit group is calling for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ban artificial caramel coloring used in Coca-Cola, Pepsi and other foods because animal tests suggest the additive is contaminated with two cancer-causing chemicals. (more…)
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…)
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…)
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.
