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.
