15 May Goitrogenic scare
Was doing research when an article mentioned about some food being goitrogenic upon reading it on wiki it seemed very bad and seemed wrong to me because of all the healthy food it is mentioning upon more research I think this article has a more logical explanation therefore is summary not to worry about the term goitrogenic.
Contrary to popular belief, foods themselves are not “goitrogenic” in the sense of causing goiter whenever they are consumed, or even when they are consumed in excess. In fact, most foods that are commonly called goitrogenic – such as the cruciferous vegetables (including broccoli, cabbage, kale, and cauliflower) and soyfoods – do not interfere with thyroid function in healthy persons even when they are consumed on a daily basis. Nor is it scientifically correct to say that foods “contain goitrogens,” at least not if you are thinking about goitrogens as a category of substances like proteins, carbohydrates, or vitamins. – whfoods.com
