The Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow (Book Review)

Lynne FarrowThe Iodine Crisis: What You Don’t Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life by Lynne Farrow

A Book Review by Jeffrey Dach MD

If you are a woman diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease or breast cancer, you need to read this book.    If you are a woman who undergoes repeated breast biopsies or breast cyst aspirations, then you need to read this book. If you are a breast cancer survivor, then you need to read this book.

As an interventional radiologist for 30 years, my job was to read the mammograms and perform the procedures, the breast biopsies and needle aspirations.  Some women had multiple cysts and nodules and returned to the department every year for repeat aspirations and biopsy procedures.  They would always corner me in the reading room and ask, “Doctor, what can I do to make these cysts and nodules in my breast go away”?  And for 30 years I would throw up my hands and say “we just don’t know”.. .

Iodine Crisis Lynne Farrow Book CoverAfter I retired from radiology and returned to clinical medicine in 2004, I attended medical meetings and listened to David Brownstein MD and George Flechas MD speaking about the health benefits of Iodine supplementation.

Iodine is the answer to fibrocystic breast disease.  Iodine is the answer for breast cancer prevention.  Iodine is the answer I should have been giving to all the women over the years I worked in the hospital X-ray department, but didn’t.  So I am making up for it now.  We routinely test for Iodine level, and give Iodine supplements to every woman in my clinic.  I consider this extremely important.

Lynne Farrow is a gifted writer and her book chronicles in exquisite detail her personal story and discovery of Iodine and her journey as an Iodine advocate.  Her book describes how Iodine was used for decades as a natural medicine, and then virtually eliminated from mainstream medicine and our food in the 1960’s by bad research.  You will find it difficult to put this book down.  There is much more of the story to be told, so go ahead and get yourself a copy and read it over and over again.  Share it with your friend, and go online to Lynne Farrow’s and the Iodine spread the word and spark a new revolution in the use of Iodine .  You can share with Lynne Farrow her mission to restore Iodine back to Medicine and kick off a grass roots campaign to prevent breast cancer.
