Effects of Chlorine on Your Thyroid

Although systems are available to clean our water by ultraviolet radiation and ozonation, Municipalities around the world continue to add chlorine to treatment facilities, at entry point, in an effort to remove toxins from the water supply. One of the many health issues associated with chlorine is it displaces the iodine in the thyroid gland. The book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing by James F. Balch, M.D. and Phyllis A. Balch, C.N.C. states:

"Chlorine, fluoride, and iodine are chemically related. Chlorine and fluoride block iodine receptors in the thyroid gland, resulting in reduced iodine-containing hormone production and finally in hypothyroidism"

Research performed in Germany has also shown that thyroid function in chlorinated communities is far less than those people in unchlorinated places.

Water filtration systems for tap water are available which utilize either reverse osmosis or activated charcoal to remove the contaminents.  Check the manufacturer's lab results when deciding on which system is right for you.
