Has anyone read/heard anything about breast cancer and iodine deficiency?  I am reading a book about it and the role iodine plays in the body and the effects of supplemting with iodine when deficient.  The book suggests that a lot of breast desease (pre-cancer) may be due to iodine deficiency and that if this deficiency were addressed the breast tissue may not become cancerous.  I had fibrocycstic breast disease for 10+ years prior to my diagnosis (funny that the exact spot that my tumor grew was noted as hardened breast tissue when I was 27 - but normal). 

I going to do more research and see about getting tested if it is actually something that doctor's test for??

I have heard this floating around a couple of times.
Is it part of that Alkaline/PH theory?
I know growing up my mom always used Morton's Iodized Salt
Both my sister and I have BC...
I don't know if that was a factor for us.
