    Default Mineral Deficiency Linked to Thyroid Diseases

    Many naturally-minded health professionals have been recommending the mineral selenium to patients suffering from thyroid conditions for years. New research published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism supports the use of this critical mineral to help address thyroid conditions.
    The study published this month found that selenium deficiency was linked to an increased risk of several thyroid diseases, including: autoimmune thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism and an enlarged thyroid. Researchers assessed 6,152 people who underwent physical and thyroid ultrasound testing, and participated in dietary and demographic questionnaires. Blood tests were also taken to examine markers for thyroid conditions.

    I'm blessed to be able to get organic Brazil nuts (called by their state name here in Brazil, rather than by their country name: castanhas de Para, with an accent on the last a) through our organic co-op at no more than the price of non-organic, and far less fresh ones, at a store. Not that they're cheap by many other countries' standards, probably.

    I have been so often disappointed by the quality of what is available locally, either organic or conventional, that I eventually bought a bottle of selenium supplements and take one periodically, just because. The soils of many areas of the US are deficient in selenium, including the Northeast where I live, so supplementation is my insurance policy.
