Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
I was born in Selby England in 1937 and moved to and grew up in Maracaibo Venezuela. It is there I met my present wife while she was still in utero as her mother, a nurse, was looking after me while she was pregnant with my wife. My wife and I are sometimes called oil babies. After getting my MD at University of British Columbia I went on after my internship at the Toronto General to take a PhD in biochemistry and neurochemistry at the Montreal Neurological Institute and McGill University.
After finishing my training I taught pharmacology to Medical students, dentistry students and pharmacy in the Department of Pharmacology University of Toronto. I also became a Medical Research Council Scholar. Due to domestic rearrangements, I suddenly had my present wife (who had grown up with me in Venezuela) and five children under the age of eight. At our wedding the children represented the whole audience. Academic life could not financially support this. I moved back to Victoria, British Columbia to start general practice.
My interest in thyroid started over 15 years ago. Also I became interested in Breast Cancer among other things about 10 years ago. I strongly feel we should have theories for medical illnesses even if they are wrong. It stimulates researchers to test the theories and more advances can be made. Other fields of science have many competing theories such as astronomy and physics and mathematics. I feel that medicine would advance faster if there were more theories to test. Over the last 12 years I have formed a library of 5000 reprints and books on breast cancer, thyroid hormone and iodine.

I give it 4 stars so you'll consider iodine and read my review, but I do not suggest this book as the best source. I'm very hesitant to denigrate the book because it might give a spark of insight to some researcher, but I doubt that the general public will get much more out of the book than the gems I pass on in this review. His theories of iodine's role in evolution and his postulates for proposed verification are just not readily applicable to those of us seeking practical advice on iodine. His rough hand-sketched illustrations added nothing to my understanding, the many typos and/or typesetting errors were distracting, and there were often grammatical ambiguities that left me wondering whether he was advocating or refuting some assertion. I also wondered whether his logic was quite faulty or I was just in over my head (I think the former).
In short, Dr Derry (MD neurologist) postulates (or declares?) that every adult should be getting a bit more than 2 to 3 mg of iodine per day for cancer prevention, thyroid health, immune response, and general well-being. Any woman contemplating pregnancy should study iodine prior to conception. Even conventional sources like WHO confirm that iodine deficiency is a (or THE!) major cause of low IQ and mental retardation worldwide.
Correlation does not prove causation, but he stresses that the Japanese eat perhaps 8~10 mg of iodine daily, through seaweed, and have the world's smallest thyroids and lowest rates of breast cancer. Japanese who migrate to the USA and adopt our diet also adopt our rates of breast cancer.
Until the 1960's, Iceland did even better by feeding fish scraps to their dairy cows, but once they began to follow world standards for maximum allowable iodine in milk, their breast cancer rate increased tenfold.
Women living in warmer climates need to generate less body heat and therefore use fewer thyroid hormones (T3, T4) and therefore their thyroids consume less iodine, leaving more for their breasts. Therefore, one would expect lower breast cancer rates at lower latitudes, and that is true. An intriguing correlation.
I don't recall Derry ever mentioning the prostate, but it also needs iodine and my own (thoroughly "amateur") hypothesis is that a prostate starved for iodine grows just as a thyroid does. So an enlarged prostate is a sort of goiter, and men can prevent that by getting more iodine (which will let them sleep through the night). Other iodine books do address the prostate, but they all seem to put most attention on the breasts.
Dr Brownstein's book on iodine (search Amazon or Google for his site) is highly, highly (and highly) repetitive to the point of absurdity but is nonetheless a very valuable reference. Lynn Farrow's book The Iodine Crisis is the most thorough, readable, and inspirational book on why we should all learn about iodine and act accordingly. (I avoid most supplements yet buy 12.5 mg iodine through Amazon and take them once or twice a week.)
Derry's extensive source references may be a gold mine for those willing to delve much deeper, but unless you're an MD, researcher, or fanatic (I say with positive appreciation) I'd suggest one of these other books. If you have other recommendations, please leave a comment below.
Learn about iodine!!! (and NOT from conventional MDs who were taught that it's toxic)
With ten pages of medical references including the work of B A Eskin and W R Ghent, Dr. Derry discloses the remarkable connection between iodine deficiency, fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer. Iodine's anti-cancer activity lies in its control of apoptosis, or programmed cell death.
Derry presents case studies complete with surgical pathology confirmation showing regression of both fibrocystic breast disease and carcinoma-in-situ breast cancer with iodine treatment. He also presents a case report case of infiltrating breast cancer involving the skin which regressed after prolonged application of topical Lugol's iodine solution.
I can report from the experience of my own family members that iodine supplementation causes regression of fibrocystic breast disease.
Derry's ideas in the book could be easily revised into an NIH grant proposal to research and confirm the role of iodine. To do so would advance the nation's health and be a great public service. Iodine is safe, inexpensive and readily available without a prescription. A US policy of iodine supplementation matching the Japanese dietary intake of iodine could very well be our best preventive measure against breast cancer.
Jeffrey Dach MD
For some this book will be a life saver, for others a way to better health and prevention from a variety of illnesses related to subclinical iodine deficiency. The traditional Japanese diet provides about 100 times the amount of iodine that we get in the typical American diet. Dr. Derry and other experts in the field consider our diet to be extremely deficient in iodine and greatly responsible for the statistics that shows that we have about ten times the amount of prostate cancer and three times the number of breast cancers per capita.
When you read the page with all the potential benefits from iodine (from detoxification to vital organ protection) you would want to make copies for all of your loved ones.
