Cadmium Impairs Thyroid Function
Cadmium is a neurotoxin that loves to disrupt and destroy hormones.
It can also be associated with:
👉🏼 Bone Disease
👉🏼 Kidney Disease
👉🏼 High Cholesterol
👉🏼 High Blood Pressure
👉🏼 Reproductive Disorders
It causes damage to our mitochondria (energy centres) and depletes the body of selenium, a vital mineral for the thyroid pathway to work.
There are some studies that show a correlation between hyperthyroidism and high levels of cadmium and mercury.
Cadmium sources include:
👉🏼Traffic - is released whenever people apply the car brakes
👉🏼Is used in some fertilisers and is therefore in soils and produce
👉🏼Industrial areas - emissions
👉🏼In PVC Pipes
👉🏼Pigment in some paints
Cadmium seems to play a role with many hormonal disruptions so getting plenty of Zinc is key.
Zinc is Cadmium's arch enemy so where we have plenty of zinc stores, there will be no room for cadmium to hang around.
