Breast Cancer Resources I like!

*Most of these sites are breast cancer specific, however there are books and the cancer planner which address all types of cancer.

The Iodine Crisis

Christy's Non Toxic Lifestyle | Books I Love | The Iodine CrisisBy Lynne Farrow
In Lynne Farrow’s book “The Iodine Crisis” I learned that thyroid and breast disease “skyrocketed between 1970 and 2000.” Why would that be, I thought? I continued reading. Apparently iodine was looked at as a “universal medicine” going back thousands of years, and ingested primarily in it’s earlier form as seaweed. So where did iodine go and why are we deficient and what is the connection to breast cancer?








Iodine, Why you Need It, Why you Can’t Live Without It

Christy's Non Toxic Lifestyle | Books I Love | Iodine: Why You Need It.

By Dr. David Brownstein
Dr. David Brownstein author of, “Iodine, Why you Need It, Why you Can’t Live Without It,” (5th Edition) that “iodine is the safest of all of the essential trace elements, can be administered safely for long periods of time and in daily amounts as high as 100,000 times the Recommended Daily Allowance by the FDA.” He notes that some iodine-containing drugs, such as amiodarone, are prescribed by physicians and are extremely toxic as they are actually inorganic iodone. Our thyroid hormones are organic containing-substances.
