Methyl Bromide Use in California and AUTISM/Thyroid Issues

Posted Jan 22 2009 3:50pm

I think this is a connection worth looking at. Calfornia autism rates are really high and California is apparently the highest user of bromide :-(

The hidden culprit could be “bromine,” a common ingredient in thousands of fresh and packaged foods, medicines, and consumer products. . .

Bromine disrupts your thyroid gland but doesn't show up as a problem in thyroid tests...


In recent years bromine toxicity has become a near epidemic because it's so widely used in food and popular home products. And here's what it does in your body . . .
Bromide is rapidly absorbed in the intestinal tract, and because its size and weight is very close to iodine, the two compete for binding in the body, especially in the thyroid gland.
This is an extremely important concept to understand . . .
If you build up too much bromine in your system, it'll crowd out the iodine, binding to your iodine receptors and causing your body to release iodine. The result is an iodine deficiency and a condition called “brominated thyroid.”
Fatigue, headache, weight gain, depression, feeling cold, and a host of other problems can follow. And your doctor won't know a bromine-induced dysfunctional thyroid is the cause, because . . .
Standard thyroid tests will not distinguish between the good iodinated thyroid and the bad brominated thyroid.
In other words, your thyroid will look normal . . . when it isn't!
