Why is thyroid cancer the fastest rising cancer in women?

by Lisa Collier Cool

Tana Amen, RN was 23 and Charlie Nox was 29 when they were diagnosed with thyroid cancerónow the fastest rising cancer among women.

Not only have rates of the disease soared by 240 percent over the past 20 years, but itís expected to become the third most common cancer in the US by 2019,

my question is
are the supplements..for low thyroid ..[thyroxin]
may be not helping ..as much as we think..many mainly womenhave been diagnosded..'low thyroid'..

so why are MORE ghetting sick?

i ask..because 3 female family member's were tested..and put onto the named medication..and wonder how long this supplement..came to be so widespread so quickly

i reason they set the level..may be based on some arbitrary average..with maybe commercial motives..or maybe just as an easy response to the common complaint of tiredness..

do the test..and prescribe the dosage..[plus many more visits/,more tests]..higher lower doses ..a

ll the while removing the needed iodine
from our diet..[eg its refined out of our salt/flour]

of course the 240%..increase isnt related to removing it

or is it...

im resuming removing it has a logical reason
but then the numbers dont lie..

[once we take a supplement..
our thyroid gland will stop working..then what..get sick?

how to talk to them..they trust modern medicine
i dont..so just suck it up?

Radioactive Iodine is one of the many pollutants released by the nuke industry over many decades. They don't go away. Iodine is readily absorbed by the Thyroid gland and this may be one of many causes.

Some are saying the Fukushima may be an extinction event. I hope not.

Dear OUG,

Firstly Welcome Back.
Glad to see you posting again.

According to the New York Times the 87 percent increase is
due to the introduction of new diagnostic
technology. It was also noted that the increase was
attributable to the diagnoses of small papillary thyroid
cancers, many of which would never have caused any problem.

It should also be made clear that 97 per cent of patients
survive.

thanks lexi..yes there is a high survivability
and the new detection tests..

[but sadly..i seem to recall much of the levels..for vitamin deficiency etc..were 'tested'..during ww2..by bayer corp..on unwilling test subjects [plus the initial complaint [tiredness]..persists]

neve4r the less there comes the regular letter advising the next test
followed by the new script..for a slightly lower dose..[along with the advice not to use the old ..higher dose rate]

its just so black or white
soon going..and never ending..so i worry re the damage this pill is doing..this expensive pill..that replaces..what never should hase been taken..out of our food.

what next..detect thyroid damage..remove it
then say..we saved your wifes life..[she just needs more ytests to keep her diss-ease..in check..

i suspect in the main women are being targeted..as the article..notes the increase of thyroid cancers..*in women..

so maybe men/women..have different levels

i know we can only voice our opinions
and concern..they arnt worried..so why should i
[because i care..or because i know..or because i distrust profit driven medicine]

noted while in hospital recently..EVERY bed has a large container..of handwash..[yet didnt see one being used]plus each handwash basin has two..next to the taps]..[this is in qld]

it must be a great contract..
just to supply/fit..one to each bed..

plus each bed was expensive top of the line..
electric with all the wizz bang you beaut..bells and whistles.

its as if were gold plating medicine
and still..nurses are underpaid..and maybe we are over serviced

anyhow..now i got it out...maybe ..

or maybe not
i really didnt expect the topic to get up
just needed to vent..so..thanks lexi

Hi again one undergod, it is probably a good idea for you to look up hypothyroidism, by google.

You may find that the awful problems your female relatives may suffer if they don't take thyroxine as requested, would far outweigh any small chances of developing thyroid cancer.

Sometimes, the dreaded medical profession can actually stop you and your loved ones from living with very distressing disorders.

You should keep a more open mind and make informed choices rather than just having a blanket ban on all things medical.
