This thread will be used to organize information about cruciferous vegetables.
Jacob Schor, ND has written an interesting article titled From bok choy to Hippocrates: ruminations on goitrogens, thyroid and the role of the physician http://denvernaturopathic.com/toomuchbokchoy.htm
This article raises the question of raw cruciferous vegetables potentially have a supressing effect on thyroid function (a non-issue with cooked cruciferous vegetables).
A keen summary: "Two things are clear. First, large amounts of brassica vegetables can interfere with thyroid function in at least some patients. Second, thyroid function may be a more complex issue in cancer patients than many of us have appreciated. We need to pay more attention."
