Meds and Compounds That Can Cause Goiters


Studies have easily shown that the most common cause of a goiter has to be Hashimoto’s. However, what many people don't realize is that medication, outside factors and other substances can cause them as well. Let's face it; our bodies are bombarded with toxic substances daily. At some point our bodies may fail to detox and control what's coming in. And in our world, this is not going to get better but worse.

Here is a small list of specific various compounds and meds that cause goiters:
  • Salofalk
  • Nitrates
  • Methimasole
  • Pesticides
  • Mercury
  • Arsenic
  • Ethionamide
  • Aminosalicylate Sodium
  • Tapazol
  • Propylthiouracil
  • Various Heavy Metals
  • Sulfonamides
  • Amiodarone
  • Lithium
  • Aminoglutethimide
  • Fertilizers
Obviously we need to be wary of things like this. We tend to put convenience, food and other factors far above our health. WHY?

This is an excellent article and list.  If one is a smoker, it would be a good idea to quit that as well.
