Excessive or lack of thyroid hormones will result in Various diseases, when the thyroid hormone is deficient, mainly affects the intelligence and physical development, and can cause cretinism (creatinism). When the adult thyroid function is insufficient, it causes myxedema.
2. Promote metabolism, thyroid hormone can promote substance oxidation, increase glycogen decomposition and utilization, increase oxygen consumption, improve basal metabolic rate, and increase heat production . Therefore, hyperthyroidism has symptoms such as heat intolerance and sweating.
3. Cardiovascular and nervous system effects. When hyperthyroidism occurs, the human body will experience increased cardiac output, increased heart rate, irritability, nervousness and other symptoms.
The number of patients with thyroid-related diseases has been on the rise in recent years. At present, the total prevalence of thyroid diseases in my country is nearly 20%, about one in every five people. Suffering from thyroid disease.

Reminder: These 2 foods contain “Benzopyrene”, often eaten or induces thyroid cancer, should be avoided early
benzopyrene is a pollutant identified by the World Health Organization , food processing pollution, asphalt pollution, packaging material pollution, environmental pollution, etc., are the main sources of benzoyl compounds in food.
kebabs, kidneys, wings, hearts, chicken treasures , grilled tendons…Drinking beer drinks, eating skewers, and drooling just thinking about it. But did you know? The content of benzopyrene in barbecue is very high.
In the process of roasting meat products, the incomplete combustion of fat and sugar and the scorched food will be accompanied by the growth of bacteria and adhere to the food. The smoke produced by the incomplete combustion of the charcoal fire also contains BaP , The higher the temperature, the longer the time, the higher the amount of production. A large number of studies have shown that long-term eating of barbecue food carcinogens will accumulate in the body, thereby causing lung cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, intestinal cancer and other cancers, and it is also harmful to the thyroid. An injury that leads to thyroid cancer in the long run.
Fried food is an irresistible delicacy, but when the oil temperature is too high, the first-class carcinogen benzopyrene will be produced, such as fried products, fried seafood, fried Fruits and vegetables, etc., the ratio of benzopyrene produced under high temperature frying is 88.8ug/kg. Often eating can easily induce cancerous cells, and it will also stimulate the thyroid gland, especially fried food, the content of benzopyrene is greatly increased, and thyroid cancer probability also increased.
So the doctor hereby reminds: BBQ and deep-fried foods contain high levels of benzos, which are often eaten or cause thyroid cancer. Therefore, it is necessary to eat in moderation and less in daily life.
