Fluoride and Hypothyroidism

Fluoridation and Hypothyroidism

Did you realize that fluoride was once used to reduce the effects of hyperthyroidism!!

Today we live in communities ingesting drinking water with fluoride doses being similar to that once prescribed.

Is it possible that this is contributing to hypothyroidism? Consider the widespread problem we have with obesity, lethargy, depression and heart disease, just to mention a few.

It’s probably time we all take a look at some of the documented research undergone on this topic.


Thyroid Disease


We all understand that hormones are produced by our thyroid gland and in turn our metabolic rate is determined.

It is pretty well understood by doctors that the occurrence of this is pretty widespread in our community, as much as 1:4.

The symptoms are vast and often overlooked and mistaken, taken alone and not diagnosed. Some of these are tiredness, overweight issues, temperature issues, depression, hair loss, infertility and many, many more. Now let’s look at;

Fluoride and Hypothyroidism

Did you know that as little as 1ppm can have an effect on our thyroid gland?

Below is what the highly acclaimed thyroid expert By Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield MBBS LRCP MRCS has to say:


1. The enzyme manufacture of thyroid hormones within the thyroid gland itself. The process by which iodine is attached to the amino acid tyrosine and converted to the two significant thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and liothyronine (T3), is slowed.

2. The stimulation of certain G proteins from the toxic effect of fluoride (whose function is to govern uptake of substances into each of the cells of the body), has the effect of switching off the uptake into the cell of the active thyroid hormone.

3. The thyroid control mechanism is compromised. The thyroid stimulating hormone output from the pituitary gland is inhibited by fluoride, thus reducing thyroid output of thyroid hormones.

4. Fluoride competes for the receptor sites on the thyroid gland which respond to the thyroid stimulating hormone; so that less of this hormone reaches the thyroid gland and so less thyroid hormone is manufactured.

These damaging effects, all of which occur with small concentrations of fluoride, have obvious and easily identifiable effects on thyroid status. The running down of thyroid hormone means a slow slide into hypothyroidism. Already the incidence of hypothyroidism is increasing as a result of other environmental toxins and pollutions together with wide spread nutritional deficiencies.


Consider this – Fluoridation in Iodine Deficient Communities

Right we know that iodine deficiency, the result of which is hypothyroidism (thyroid hormone cannot be manufactured without iodine), affect huge numbers of people globally. Now consider this, fluorine, which is a halogen (by the way related to iodine), but very much more active, this actually displaces iodine, not good. So that our bodies ability to take up iodine is very much compromised by the addition of fluorine.

The result is that we are in reducing the ability of the communities with low levels of iodine, by fluoridating the water systems thus leaving them to the inevitable failure of their thyroid.

Is this lunacy?
