Cadmium Impairs Thyroid Function

Cadmium is a neurotoxin that loves to disrupt and destroy hormones.

It can also be associated with:

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Bone Disease
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Kidney Disease
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ High Cholesterol
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ High Blood Pressure
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Emphysema
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Headaches
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 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:

πŸ‘‰πŸΌCigarette smoke
πŸ‘‰πŸΌTraffic - is released whenever people apply the car brakes
πŸ‘‰πŸΌIs used in some fertilisers and is therefore in soils and produce
πŸ‘‰πŸΌIndustrial areas - emissions
πŸ‘‰πŸΌIn PVC Pipes
πŸ‘‰πŸΌPigment 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.
