    There are many causes of Goiter disease, however the most commonly found cause of goiter in underdeveloped countries, is the deficiency of iodine in human diet, one can have good amount of iodine in fish, table salts, and drinking water. Iodine is an important and essential element in the production of thyroid harmones. In the absence of Iodine, thyroid gland over works, in order to produce thyroid harmones, and as a result it swells up. 

    World Health Organization has termed it as an endemic goiter, as still 750 million people are suffering from this problem. Therefore, its adviseable to take iodine in its organic form. those who are suffering from this disease, should increase the consumption of turnips, carrots, garlic, pineapples, whole rice, tomatoes, watercress, strawberries, guavas, lettuce, onions, oats, citrus fruits, egg yolks, and seafoods.
