    You may want to research "goitrogenic foods". These are foods that can contribut to goiter (swelling of the thyroid gland). I have been slowly trying to cut them out of my diet as I've had goiter issues. Broccoli, Spinach, Strawberries are all goitrogenic foods. I also avoid all soy products like the plague!

    check out thyroid.about.com - Mary knows her stuff and is open to alternative medicine - she brings up issues like Fluoride. Plus everything on the About.com Health channel is vetted by a panel.

    Google's new 'scholarly articles' option is really useful.

    Please keep in mind that goitrogenic vegetables (like broccoli and cabbage) are FINE if they're cooked. The problem is with eating them raw. Cooking eliminates the goitrogens. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and eat these veggies regularly.

    I agree with this reccomendation as well. Also, their list of "Top Thyroid Docs" was helpful to me in the beginning. I was interested in taking natural (dessicated) thyroid and most CW docs push the synthetics.

    Unfortunately cooked strawberries just dont do it for me.

    That is very good information about cooking goitrogenic foods though. I didn't know that.

    Spinach is one of my favorites , so I am very grateful you shared that with me emmie. I'll settle for boiled
