Iodine and Cancer.....Current statistics show that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their life.

Let’s examine one of the most important minerals that can block breast cancer:  IODINE.

It may surprise you to learn that a simple mineral, iodine, can not only protect against breast cancer, but can actually help fight it. Research has been done on animals using a substance that blocks iodine attaching to breast cells, perchlorate.

After blocking iodine from breast tissue for 8 weeks, the tissue was examined and found to have developed a precancerous pattern. When iodine was blocked and estrogen was added, there was less precancerous looking cells, and when iodine was blocked and thyroid hormone added, there were the same precancerous tissue changes present. This shows that it is really the iodine itself that can protect breast tissue from developing into cancer and not thyroid hormone.

Iodine has been shown to actually kill certain strains of cancer cells that can cause breast cancer, in vitro (grown outside of the body, like a petri dish).

Iodine has also been shown to soften breast tissue and reverse fibrocystic changes, which is a risk factor for breast cancer; in addition to being a condition which often causes women pain and discomfort.

The only form of iodine that has been studied and is recommended is Lugols.*

*Never take iodine alone. Follow the Iodine Protocol and make sure you are taking the companion nutrients so you don't throw your body further out of balance.

Lugols is a key component of The Iodine Protocol.
