Understanding the pathways by which F. interferes with iodine
transport and metabolism may help avoid breast mastopathies
such as fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer.
The combination of iodide (or iodine) deficiency and the current widespread exposure to fluoride (F), often in uncontrolled doses, potentially affects the health and function of the mammary glands, which require elemental iodine (I2) for normal architecture and function. Understanding the pathways by which F. interferes with iodine transport and metabolism may help avoid breast mastopathies such as fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer. Appreciation of these pathways may also assist in understanding the potential of F. to affect thyroid hormone function and the transport of the essential nutrient iodide ion (I–) to the developing fetus during critical windows of its development and postnatally to the suckling infant.
