Hormone-sensitive cancers are occurring at epidemic rates. For example, one in seven women are affected by breast cancer and one in three men are affected by prostate cancer. While there are numerous reasons for the development of cancer, something you might not be aware of — and the research is clear — is that iodine deficiency is a major piece of the cancer puzzle. Dr. David Brownstein explains that iodine deficiency has been associated with other hormone-sensitive cancers, including thyroid, ovarian, uterine, pancreatic, even fibrocystic breast disease. In this episode, we will learn that iodine — which is effective and inexpensive — could be a key to help solve a global health crisis.
David Brownstein, M.D., is a conventionally trained board-certified family physician with the additional overlay of holistic principles. While Dr. Brownstein does not claim to have a cure for any illness, he does believe that we can enhance the individual’s immune system by supporting the “host” and the terrain of the host. The human body is well designed and the immune system, when given the proper support, can optimally function.
