• Iodine is a crucial mineral and may relieve breast pain and cysts.
• Iodine concentrates in milk ducts-decreases estrogen responsive genes and helps immune function
The breasts are one of the body’s main storage sites for iodine in the body. In an iodine-deficient state, the thyroid gland and the breasts will compete for what little iodine is available.”
“Iodine has been shown to induce apoptosis (death) in breast and thyroid cancer cells”
“It is known that ovaries concentrate a large amount of iodine. After the thyroid, the ovaries have the second largest concentration of iodine in the body. Iodine deficiency produces changes in the ovarian production of estrogens as well as changes in the estrogen receptors of the breasts. In an iodine, deficient state, research has shown that ovarian estrogen production increases, while estrogen receptors in the breast increase their sensitivity to estrogens. Both of these conditions will increase the risk of developing pathology of the breasts, including breast cancer.”
“Fibrocystic breast disease is a very common condition which is found in up to 2/3 of women, that responds very well to iodine therapy.”
“Research in animals has shown that the correction of iodine deficiency results in abnormal breast tissue changing back to normal breast tissue.”
