Iodine Deficiency - 11 Signs You are Suffering from it!

Iodine Deficiency - 11 Signs You are Suffering from it!

Iodine deficiency is a very common problem worldwide and is a major cause of thyroid disorders. The entire mechanism of how deficiency of iodine causes hypothyroidism is a complex explanation. So we will stick to layman terms and keep it simple. Deficiency of iodine causes a range of diseases which, altogether are termed as iodine deficiency diseases. When an individual does not receive enough iodine, the thyroid gland increases in size because the thyroid is unable to make enough hormones that are necessary for the body. This causes the development of a condition called goitre. Iodine deficiency in pregnant and lactating women is a serious concern because it is the most popular cause of preventable mental retardation.

There can be situations where a person might not be getting adequate iodine, but may not show any symptoms of iodine deficiency. The easiest way to know if a person has iodine deficiency is to get a urine test done or a blood test done to check the level of iodine in the body. Thyroid is a very important gland and is responsible for the following:

  1. Controlling the metabolic rate
  2. Boosting synthesis of proteins
  3. Regulating blood flow and heart rate
  4. Promoting brain development and linear growth in children
  5. Helping in normal reproductive functioning in adults

Here are the most common signs that can tell you that your thyroid is not functioning properly due to deficiency of iodine.

  1. You feel lethargic and tired most of the times and suffer from weakness constantly (due to reduced metabolic rates).
  2. You may start feeling cold, even when it is visibly warm for the others around you.
  3. You may have difficulty in concentrating and might have a poor memory (due to slowed down mental processes)
  4. You may experience unusual weight gain.
  5. You may become more prone to depressive periods.
  6. You may notice your skin becoming thick and puffy or your face becoming puffier than usual.
  7. You may suffer from hair loss.
  8. You may start having frequent problems of constipation.
  9. Your skin might feel really dry.
  10. You might feel your heart beating slower.
  11. Visible signs would include enlargement of the chin and neck area (caused due to enlargement of your thyroid gland).

With proper treatment and change in diet, iodine deficiency disorders can be prevented with ease. For a better diagnosis, you must consult an experienced medical practitioner and follow his suggestions for improving the iodine levels in your body.

10 Most Unhealthy Cancer Causing Foods To Avoid-

10 Most Unhealthy Cancer Causing Foods To Avoid-
The food we take has greater role in determining our health, both physical and mental. Eating unhealthy foods can prove to be fatal as they have all capabilities to cause different kinds of health diseases including cancer. Here is the list of unhealthy foods which come with more risk of developing cancers. Make sure to keep these foods in mind and avoid them as much as possible.

1). Processed meat

Different kinds of methods used for preserving and processing the meat, including pickling, curing, salting, smoking, chemical usage, etc, can also become source of cancer diseases. These preservatives have nitrate and sodium nitrite which are proved carcinogens.

2). Gmo foods

Gmo stands for genetically modified organisms. It includes all kinds of plants and their products which are developed using modern techniques from biotechnology and inter disciplined sciences. Nowadays, most of the fruits and vegetable crops are being developed using some or the other kind of genetic modification. Hence, it is good option to buy foods which are non-gmo verified and certified organic foods.

3). Smoked/burned foods

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are produced when the foods are smoked or barbecued. Such chemicals create increased risk of cancer. In the recent studies, it has been found that eating smoked or burned foods increases the chance of pancreatic cancer by nearly 60%.

4). Foods having artificial sweeteners

Those who are in misconception that artificial sweeteners are healthy compared to normal refined sugar, will have to come out of their misleading opinions. Otherwise, they would have to pay huge. Foods & beverages having these artificial sweeteners are rich in saccharin, aspartame, sucralose, etc are very much dangerous as they can cause cancers.

5). Sweetened beverages

Recent studies have shown that those who consume more amounts of soda will have more chances of getting cancers. The excess sugars accumulating in the body will form best medium for the growth of cancerous cells.

6). Fried food items

Fried food items are tasty and they also posses the risk of health disorders including cancers. Frying the food items in pre-heated oil will produce toxic aldehydes which have the ability to cause health hazards like cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, etc.

7). Contaminated foods

Usage of pesticides will contaminate fruits and vegetables. The residues of these pesticides are found on fruits and vegetables even if they are used at the time of cultivation. These chemicals increase the chances of getting cancers and also reduce iq levels in children.

8). Microwave popcorn

Popcorn bags should not be kept in microwave as the perfluoroctanoic acid (pfoa) present in these bags will have all the potential of causing pancreatic, testicular and hepatic cancers. When the popcorn is microwaved along with the bags, the toxic chemical vapors will be absorbed by the popcorn, thereby reaching our body.

9). Hydrogenated oil

Most dangerous aspect of hydrogenated oils is that they have the capability to change the cell membrane structure. Because of this reason, cells become more susceptible for cancers. Make sure to purchase foods which are labelled to be free from hydrogenated vegetable oils.

10). Canned food items

For keeping the food items intact and fresh for longer periods, canned foods are mixed with different kinds of preservatives and chemicals. Sometimes, these chemicals react with the metal of the can, thereby becoming fatal. Such chemicals can disturb normal hormonal levels in the body leading to wide range of health risks like cancers.
