"I saw a woman wearing a sweatshirt with
'Guess' on it. I said, Thyroid problem?"

Children with soaring thyroid cancer rates.
Children with soaring kidney cancer rates.
Soaring ice cream and cheese consumption rates.
Is there a connection?
One's first reaction upon reading the politically
incorrect Arnold Schwarzenegger quotation opening
this column is revulsion at the man's boorishness.
It is only after learning that 100 percent of
adults over age 50 have thyroid cancer (reported
in the New York Times - more on that in this
column), does one's revulsion turn to puzzlement.
Then, only after reading the dairy connection
to thyroid cancer, does puzzlement morph into
extreme anger...at government health regulators
who know, and at dairy producers who do not
want to know.
The September, 2014 issue of the journal Pediatrics
contains a study revealing that cancer rates among
children from 2001 through 2009 have soared,
particularly thyroid cancer and kidney cancer,
Dr. David A. Siegel, MD, noted that the leading cause
death among adolescents and children in the United
States is cancer. Siegel and his team analyzed data
representing 120,137 cases of childhood cancer from
the National Program of Cancer Registries and
Surveillance, Epidemiology by age, gender, race,
ethnicity, and geography. Researchers found:
"The overall rate of all cancers combined remained
stable over time...There was an increase in the
overall cancer trend among African American children
and adolescents. An increasing trend for thyroid cancer
was observed among both genders and specifically among
adolescents...Renal carcinoma incidence was increasing
"This study reports the novel finding that renal
carcinoma rates are increasing among children and
adolescents. This study confirms that thyroid cancer
rates are increasing and further describes rising
cancer rates among African Americans."
The thyroid gland is located within the neck, midway
between your mouth and shoulder bones. Thyroid glands
have numerous hormonal functions, but are best known
for regulating the rate at which your body burns fuel
to produce energy. The thyroid was named from the
Greek word for shield. Picture the shield in the
constellation Orion, the hunter. Now fold that shield
over so that it resembles a bowtie in shape. That is
how your thyroid gland would appear to the surgeon
removing a tumor.
Human thyroid gland function is regulated by iodine
metabolism. In healthy bodies, iodine levels are
delicately maintained so as to be in balance.
What are the consequences of ingesting excess iodine?
Scientific studies have linked the consumption of high
amounts of iodine to increased risk of thyroid cancer.
Virtually all American adults over age 50 have one or more
thyroid tumors according to an autopsy study published in
the New York Times on November 8, 1994, page C-1. The
article was written by Gina Kolata.
These tumors usually grow undetected, as they are not
clinically diagnosed, but they are discovered during
histological examination of thyroid tissue upon autopsy.
The autopsy study was performed on thousands of premature
deaths (such as automobile accident victims) and the result
Why do Americans eat so much iodine? The average American
eats 666 pounds per year of dairy products. That represents
40 percent of our per capita food intake.
The udder is a dirty filthy smelly part of the cow's
body collecting urine and feces which drip down the
cow's rear legs to collect and taint your food with
a uniquely disgusting essence.
The human kidney filters this filth along with
copious amounts of iodine. A few years ago, Notmilk
tested milk samples (Winston Labs) at the cost of
$340 per sample and found up to 300 times the
Kidney cancer and thyroid tumor epidemic? It's
getting worse with each slice of pizza consumed;
with each cup of Greek yogurt; with each wedge

"Twenty million more have Chronic Kidney Disease, where
patients experience a gradual deterioration of kidney
function, the end result of which is kidney failure."
