Natural Health Sherpa named bromine, fluoride, and chlorine as chemicals that lead to iodine deficiency. Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) September 11, 2012 Natural Health Sherpa named bromine, fluoride, and chlorine as three chemicals that hinder iodine absorption, thus leading to deficiency in the mineral. Iodine is a vital nutrient that helps prevent goiter, depression, mental degradation, and many other conditions. “It is essential for the production of the hormone thyroxin, which your...

Endocrine Society revises clinical practice guideline for management of thyroid dysfunction The Endocrine Society has made revisions to its 2007 Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for management of thyroid disease during pregnancy and postpartum. The CPG provides recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of patients with thyroid-related medical issues just before and during pregnancy and in the postpartum interval. Thyroid hormone contributes critically to normal fetal brain...

Congenital hypothyroidism is thyroid hormone deficiency at birth that, if left untreated, can lead to neurocognitive impairments in infants and children. Although the World Health Organization recommends 200-300 µg of iodine daily during pregnancy for normal fetal thyroid hormone production and neurocognitive development, the US Institute of Medicine considers 1,100 µg to be the safe upper limit for daily ingestion. A case series scheduled for publication in The Journal of...

A team of chemists at the University of Geneva have finally demonstrated the utility of the rare halogen bond which acts as a anions transporter Professor Stefan Matile does not mention whether, as a child, he was a big fan of Lego. However, as an adult, he is fascinated by the game of molecular construction. Using the rules of chemistry, it is possible to artificially assemble all kinds of molecules and even nanomachines. However, chemists in this area feel their creativity constrained...

Radioactive Kelp From Japan Found On The West Coast

As the nuclear reactor in Fukushima, Japan suffered a meltdown after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the surrounding areas became contaminated with radioactive particles. Now, as other items and debris from the earthquake are being washed up on the West Coast´s shore, some of these radioactive particles have been found in giant kelp along the shore. According to a recently published study, radioactive iodine was found in kelp samples from beds along the west coast from Laguna...

Radioactive iodine found by Dartmouth researchers in the local New Hampshire environment is a direct consequence of a nuclear reactor's explosion and meltdown half a world away, says Joshua Landis, a research associate in the Department of Earth Science. The failure of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility, following the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami, was the largest nuclear disaster since 1986 at Chernobyl. "We live on a really small planet and this demonstrates that what...

Radioactive medicine being tracked through rivers A University of Delaware oceanographer has stumbled upon an unusual aid for studying local waterways: radioactive iodine. Trace amounts of the contaminant, which is used in medical treatments, are entering waterways via wastewater treatment systems and providing a new way to track where and how substances travel through rivers to the ocean. "This is a really interesting convergence of medicine, public health and environmental science,"...

Developed following the earthquake in Japan in March 2011, the protocol can be used to evaluate ability of filters to reduce radioactive iodine from water. Tokyo, Japan and Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) March 09, 2012 NSF International and the Japan Water Purification Association (JWPA) are completing a jointly developed protocol to evaluate the ability of certain water filtration products to reduce iodine (including radioactive iodine) from drinking water. Once the protocol is complete,...

Astatine is a radioactive chemical element. The symbol for Astatine is At and its atomic number is 85. Astatine is the heaviest halogen discovered. It was first produced by Dale R. Corson, Kenneth Ross Mackenzie, and Emilio Segrè in 1940. Although astatine is produced by radioactive decay in nature, it is typically found only in miniscule amounts due to its short half-life (the time it takes for one half of the atoms of a given radioactive substance to decay or disintegrate). Trace amounts...
