What follows below is an unsolicited report from the front lines in the fight against cancer. It comes from a wonderful person, a very close friend, whose mother just last week was “treated” for a major thyroid cancer.

The healthy functioning of the thyroid is essential to maintaining metabolism and preventing the accumulation of body fat, writes Burton Goldberg in Alternative Medicine.
An underactive thyroid gland slows your metabolism; you thus burn dramatically fewer calories and feel sluggish. In addition, in Asian Health Secrets, Letha Hadady explains that an underactive thyroid gland promotes excess weight and cellulite by causing water retention.
