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.’

Is The Epidemic of Thyroid Nodule ‘Cancers’ A Medical Illusion?

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…)

The Growing Epidemic of Thyroid Disease and What To Do About It

It is estimated that over 200 million people globally (about 35 million people in North America) suffer from at least one of the many forms of thyroid disease. In fact, thyroid problems are increasing so much in frequency that scientists are calling it an epidemic. The incidence of thyroid illness occurs about seven times more frequently in women than men, and it is thought that at least 50% of the cases are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

It was recently reported that the radioactive fallout in Japan during 2011 has now caused thyroid disease in the farthest corners of the world. Children born in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washing-ton within one to sixteen weeks after the nuclear accident in Japan were 28% more likely to suffer from congenital hypothyroidism than in the preceding year.

There is also a dramatic increase in the rates of thyroid cancer, which is the fastest growing cancer in North America today. In 2010, the American Cancer Society reported 45,000 new cases. They now predict that in 2013 there will be about 60,220 new cases of thyroid cancer, and this number is expected to grow rapidly in the next decade. (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…)

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.

Thyroid cancer patients turned into walking dirty bombs after drinking radioactive poison as cancer therapy

My, you look glowing today! Cancer patients who receive radiation of their thyroid glands by being given radioactive iodine are highly radioactive for up to a week following their release from the hospital — and they end up irradiating not just hospital rooms but also other patients, friends and family members. Radiation levels are so high in these people that they have set off radiation alarms designed to detect terrorist threats, says a congressional report. (more…)

Medical Mystery: Thyroid Cancer Rates Soar

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck, right below your Adam’s apple, which produces hormones important for the regulation of heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. Over the past ten years, cancer rates for this gland have soared — and scientists don’t know why. In fact, thyroid cancer is the fastest increasing cancer rate among both men and women in the U.S., rising over 6.5 percent a year. This startling zip up in thyroid cancers is being seen consistently among all racial and ethnic groups. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) estimates 37,200 new cases will be diagnosed this year and around 1,630 Americans will die from the disease. (more…)
