Scientists Find Fluoridated Water Causes Hypothyroidism

A recent investigation published in the BMJ Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health on fluoridated water had very harrowing results. [1] Peckham, Lowery, and Spencer published their study in 2015, which associated fluoride levels in drinking water with a metabolic condition called hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is characterized by an underperforming thyroid, meaning it doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones for the body’s needs. Thyroid hormones regulate the body’s metabolic processes, which in turn affect weight, energy, and mood. In hypothyroidism, a person can gain weight, lose energy, and become depressed.

About 10 percent of England’s population resides in areas that have fluoridated water; the study collected data from 8,000 general medical practice locations in the country. The researchers found that areas that had water fluoridation programs were almost twice as likely to report a high prevalence of hypothyroidism cases compared to areas without water fluoridation programs – 30 percent more likely to be exact.

This study was even published by Newsweek, with the facts plainly stated for everyone to see – there were nine percent more cases of hypothyroidism in areas with fluoridated water compared to others. This is worrying because compared to England’s 10 percent (approximately 6 million people), over 70 percent of the American population live in areas that fluoridate their water. [2] Also, compared to men, women are 15 times more likely to have hypothyroidism – which is 15 in 1,000 people.

While the authorities in England stick by their stand that fluoride levels in drinking water are safe, [3] it pays to be more careful, especially as new studies are stating otherwise on the topic of fluoridated water safety.

Fluoride and Iodine

So how does fluoride cause hypothyroidism? Numerous studies have linked fluoride to inhibition of iodine production in the body. Without iodine, the thyroid ceases to function adequately, which causes hypothyroidism. Fluoride, being lighter and more reactive than iodine, easily displaces it when there is too much fluoride in the blood. This interferes with iodine uptake by the body. On a similar note, the toxic effects of fluoride can also affect the production of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) by the pituitary gland as well as the TSH-receptor sites on the thyroid – both leading to decreased production of thyroid hormones, leading to hypothyroidism.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:


Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
