[Alert] THIS Drug is KILLING Seniors!
My grandfather used to say, “If it’s not one thing, it’s another.”
That’s certainly the case with modern medicine – especially when it comes to mainstream drugs.
You get a diagnosis for a condition, take a drug to treat it, and then end up with another (often deadlier) condition as a result of the drug you’re taking the treat the initial problem.
Case in point: A study finds that a popular drug taken by thousands of seniors can send your risk of cancer skyrocketing.
And it could be in your medicine cabinet right now!
You might not realize just how important your thyroid gland is… until it stops functioning properly.
An overactive thyroid – called hyperthyroidism – can leave you feeling fatigued, hot, irritable, and sleepless, along with giving you heart palpitations, diarrhea, and more.
All of these symptoms occur as a result of an enlarged thyroid.
The most common treatment for hyperthyroidism is radioactive iodine. You take it by pill, and the cells in your thyroid absorb the radiation, which destroys them in the process.
Radioactive iodine is considered to be the most reliable cure for the condition, but it actually destroys your thyroid gland in the process.
Predictably, this leads to hypothyroidism… an underactive thyroid. When that happens, you’ll need to take thyroid hormone replacement therapy for the rest of your life.
And just like that, you become a customer for life.
And that’s not even the worst problem with this “best” option for hyperthyroidism.
According to a study recently published in JAMA Internal Medicine, people who received radioactive iodine to treat their hyperthyroidism have an increased risk of dying from cancer… especially breast cancer.
After analyzing 19,000 people, the researchers found that for every 1,000 people treated using the standard dosage, 20 to 30 solid tumor deaths would occur as a result.
That’s because while most of the radiation is absorbed by the thyroid gland, there is still some radiation that reaches the surrounding tissues, like the breast and stomach.
And it turns out that the more radiation an organ absorbed, the higher the risk of a lethal cancer developing at that site.
This relationship was especially strong for breast cancer.
Since 1.2% of the population has hyperthyroidism – and since women are more likely to have it than men – this represents a critical piece of information that women need to know if they want to avoid developing breast cancer. Especially since hyperthyroidism can often be managed through diet and supplementation.
Regarding diet, it’s critical to avoid foods high in iodine, which include iodized salt, seafood, egg yolks, and eating lots of chicken, beef, or grains.
Evidence has shown that supplements like L-carnitine and selenium can help combat the effects of hyperthyroidism.
In fact, one study even showed that L-carnitine can actually reverse symptoms as severe as heart palpitations, tremors, and fatigue.
Oh, and they won’t increase your risk of cancer in the process.
