What Are Goitrogens And Do They Matter With Hashimoto's?

"Goitrogens are substances that suppress the thyroid gland by interfering with thyroid hormone production. As a compensatory mechanism, the thyroid will enlarge to counteract the reduced hormone production. This enlargement is also known as a goiter.

Different goitrogenic substances are contained in various foods." more at http://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/what-are-goitrogens-and-do-they-matter-with-hashimotos
