Getting Enough Of This Mineral Could Help In
The Fight Against Cancer…

Did you know there’s a super-cheap mineral
(that you’re probably not getting enough of)…

… that could help in the fight against certain
types of cancer?

That mineral is iodine.

In nature it’s pretty scarce. Mainly because
it’s found in the ocean and only in very small
quantities in soil and in certain foods.

Decades ago, Australia put an end to iodine
deficiency by including it in table salt (iodized table salt).

But more recently, rates of iodine deficiency are
increasing at an alarming rate.

In fact, iodine deficiency here in Australia has
QUADRUPLED in the past 40 years, with most
Australians experiencing a 50% reduction in
iodine levels.

There are a few reasons for this:

1. Bromine exposure. Bromine is found in baked goods,
plastics, medications, pesticides, soft drinks and more.
It contributes to iodine deficiency because when it gets
into your body, it displaces iodine, not allowing your
body to take in what little iodine may be available.

2. Perchlorate contamination. This is an active chemical
in rocket fuel that’s made its way into our food and
water supply – and even used to enhance flavour in
certain foods! Once ingested, it decreases your body’s
ability to use iodine.

3. Less salt intake. With the mainstream media telling
us to eat less salt, we’re now avoiding what was once our
main source of iodine! What’s more, healthier versions of
salt, such as Sea and Kosher salts contain little to no iodine.
Also, salt used in cooking loses over 60% of its iodine content.

“So what does all this have to do with cancer?”

Glad you asked!

In the context of breast cancer, iodine plays a critical role
in the health of women’s breast tissue.

In fact, breast tissue that is iodine deficient commonly
shows elevated levels of lipid peroxidation – which is
one of the earliest signs of cancer development.

There is also both anecdotal and emerging scientific
evidence for iodine’s role in preventing breast cancer.

The Japanese have one of the highest intakes of iodine
in the world, since they eat a diet rich in seafood and
sea vegetables.

It’s also no coincidence then, that Japanese women
(whose iodine consumption is 25 times HIGHER than
that of Australian women) have breast cancer rates that
are a small fraction of that seen in Australia.!

In one animal-model study, iodine given to cancer-prone
rats slashed the breast (mammary) tumor rates by almost
2.5-fold. [1]

And as far as other kinds of cancers, boosting iodine
levels in the body has been linked to a reduction in the
rate of stomach cancer. [2]

So the moral of the story here is to make sure you’re
getting enough iodine in your diet. Don’t take it in supplement
form, as there is evidence that it could cause issues with your

Instead, aim to eat plenty of iodine-rich foods every day.

That means eating plenty of whole eggs, milk (raw if possible),
sea vegetables, certain types of seafood (like mussels, for instance)
and yogurt.

Other than that, limit your exposure to substances that
interfere with your body’s utilisation of iodine.

That means choosing baked goods that are bromine-free.
This will usually be displayed on the label. Try to avoid plastic
containers and instead use glass. Also, drink filtered water and
use iodised salt directly on food (only if you don’t have high-blood pressure!
Check with your doctor first.).

So there you have it. Make sure you get enough of this cheap
mineral and help your body stay healthy!
