Angel of Thyroid Disease came from Fukushima

Published on April 5, 2013


I have very bad news for everyone, but especially for young children and their parents in the western United States and probably for most of the continent, Canada, Mexico and other countries and continents further away. Today we read that babies have a 28 percent higher chance for thyroid disease from one year to the next before and after Fukushima.

I wrote 31 essays on Fukushima and published Nuclear Toxicity Syndrome and my second edition of my Iodine book to focus us on the biggest disaster of modern day existence.  I have gone as far as actually advising people to think about abandoning life in the northern hemisphere, especially if they wanted to have or already have young children. I can assure you all that Fukushima is a trillion times worse than you can imagine.

Yahoo News published today:

A  new study from the Radiation and Public Health Project found that babies born in the western United States as well as other Pacific countries shortly after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan in March 2011 may be at greater risk for congenital hypothyroidism.

Babies born in places including Hawaii, Alaska, California, Oregon and Washington shortly after Fukushima were 28 percent more likely to suffer from the illness, according to the study, than children born in those same regions one year earlier. The illness, if untreated, can cause permanent handicaps in both the body and brain.

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, "If untreated, congenital hypothyroidism can lead to intellectual disability and abnormal growth.

I will publish a Fukushima update next week. It is a hard medical lesson we are being given with this information. Even though I live in the southern hemisphere I personally need to be more alarmed and translate that into more consistent iodine supplementation for my children.

There are many strategies to helping the young and old to resist radiation damages as well as thyroid disease. Iodine is principle to such strategies. Everyone today should be knowledgeable about iodine so I would either read my book on the subject or Dr. David Brownstein’s book Iodine-Why You Need It.

  • Rhonda

    I am so confused about iodine. I have been told NOT to take any form of iodine because I have Hashimotos. What is the real story?

    • Dear Rhonda,

      Dr. Sircus feels that if selenium is adequately supplemented the dangers of Hashimoto’s is greatly lessened.
      Conclusion Excess iodine intake can cause an autoimmune thyroiditis that bears all the characteristics of Hashimoto’s. However, in animal studies this occurs only if selenium is deficient or in excess. Similarly, in animal studies very high iodine intake can exacerbate a pre- existing autoimmune thyroiditis, but only if selenium is deficient or in excess. With optimal selenium status, thyroid follicles are healthy, goiter is eliminated, and autoimmune markers like Th1/Th2 ratio and CD4+/CD8+ ratio are normalized over a wide range of iodine intake.
      This is the conclusion of studies done on the effects of selenium and iodine on thyroid issues.
      Dr. Sircus recommends that selenium be started prior to starting the iodine so that your levels of selenium are brought up to par first.
      Please read Dr. Sircus book on Iodine: —– Original Message —–

  • i ordered IODOROL when the reactors reacted and before the pharmacies ran out..still on it but lower dosage now..
    i have always maintained that we are being kept in the dark re: the real radiation threat..sigh

  • They’ve suggested radiation treatment for tumours in my neck and throat. But if radiation is so wonderful at killing cancer, why does it cause cancers? Surely even government shills wouldn’t be able to deny that?
