A new study published in Occupational and Environmental Medicine may give you pause for thought the next time you reach for your favorite hand sanitizer. We’ve long known that the chemicals present in these products aren’t the best thing to be applying to the skin, not to mention they’re exceptionally drying. But occasional use can’t be that harmful, right? As it turns out, using chemical hand sanitizers can actually triple the risk of developing thyroid cancer.

Is it possible for an epidemic to be invisible?
Dr. Veronique Desaulniers, December 22, 2015
Over 200 million Americans live in areas where fluoride is added to their water supply.
Disillusioned by the government's questionable position on radiation dangers throughout the region, many Japanese families living in and around the Fukushima prefecture where a large nuclear power station sustained three full meltdowns back in 2011 are deciding to send their children away to greener, safer pastures.
As the debate continues over the degree to which radiation from Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant has spread around the world, health officials would do well to consider a 2004 study showing the connection between the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown and elevated thyroid cancer rates nearly 20 years later.
When Japanese Professor Toshihide Tsuda of Okayama University sat down with leaders from the Japanese Ministry of the Environment, talk about citywide evacuation near the Fukushima nuclear breakdown site began. Deeply concerned about rising thyroid cancer rates in Japanese children, these leaders believe that it's time to evacuate the city of Koriyama.
Sometimes we writers wake up and read something that makes us want to turn into vengeful angels. In this case I want to swoop across the human landscape of idiots who would try to mislead people with their stupidity about radiation and its effects (or lack thereof).
As seen on “NBC Nightly News” Monday, December 21, the thyroid cancer rate is rising rapidly, especially among women. The American Thyroid Association’s members are working to educate more people about thyroid cancer as well as treat and cure it.

Although the U.S. Supreme Court has not indicated what type of thyroid cancer Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist has, some experts in the field said they hope news of his illness will spark interest in finding new treatments for the rarest and deadliest forms of the disease.
