With the recent challenges of Levothyrox in France and the recent video from Arte on the drop of IQ for the last 20 years. I found useful to learn more about thyroid and wanted to share this infographics from Positive Health Wellness. Thyroid is a vital gland and plays a huge role in our well-being. I am preparing a post about how the world lost common sense. Science has made incredible progress of the last century and we have a better understanding of health related issues now than we never had. However, with science comes powerful lobbies that want to protect their own short-term financial interests.
We all know that knowledge is a two-edge swords. It’s what you do with it that can become a weapon of mass destruction or an opportunity to increase people well-being. We know more know about the positive role of iodine and the negative ones of endocrine disruptors than ever. However, the chemical industry wants us to believe all this is much ado about nothing! Some really simple things and behaviors can have a tremendous effect on our health, longevity and well-being. Knowing your thyroid and what it do for you is important.
The world is a wonderful place. Let’s spend some time to learn more about how it works and how the human body works so we can make more informed choices. It’s nothing complex. It’s just time and little effort, for huge rewards!
