Strawberries Interfere with Thyroid Function?

I picked up a booklet in the supermarket that contains recipes, coupons and mini-articles on various subjects. One of the articles in this weeks booklet was on strawberries and I was surprised to read the following:

"If you've got thyroid problems you'll want to stay away from strawberries. They contain goitrogens and oxalates".

Wow am I the only one who didn't know this? I eat strawberries every day with my cereal.

So now I'm worried and look up information online. The following link was very interesting. I didn't know this, but there is a whole list of foods containing these goitrogens. Most of which I eat on a regular basis.

Do all of you stay away from these foods? Another article said it is not necessary to stay away from these foods unless they cause problems. Any thoughts?

I've heard about the soy products being bad, but I haven't seen any of the other stuff mentioned on that site. Interesting.

But wouldn't this be a positive for cancer patients since their TSH needs to be supressed to keep the cancer away???

You make a good point. It would seem to be a positive. When I get a chance I am going to search for more articles. I need to know more about this.
