THC Editor’s Note:
There has been established a strong correlation between congenital hypothyroidism and prenatal exposure to radioactive iodine for children born in California after the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe. This alarming development represents a true public health disaster-in-the-making for Americans living on the West Coast. Why? Because the developing fetus is the canary in the coal mine warning us of what may be occurring — under the radar — throughout many communities which dot Pacific Ocean coastline, and beyond.
