Thyrotoxicosis from consumption of Thyroid gland.

Thyroid hormones are orally active, which means that consumption of thyroid gland tissue can cause thyrotoxicosis, a type of hyperthyroidism. Several outbreaks of thyrotoxicosis have been attributed to a practice, now banned in the US, called "gullet trimming", where meat in the neck region of slaughtered animals is ground into hamburger. Because thyroid glands are reddish in color and located in the neck, it's not unusual for gullet trimmers to get thyroid glands into hamburger or sausage. People, and presumably pets, that eat such hamburger can get dose of thyroid hormone sufficient to induce disease.

If eating raw thyroid gland of an animal causes problems then all we learn about eating glands to regenerate glands is not true?




Anybody here eats thyroid gland? How does it affects you

These claims are dodgy at best, there is no way to confirm the validity.

What other factors are involved?

The thyroid ground into the meat of sick animals may cause problems. The glands tend to concentrate the most toxic elements. Radiative and toxic elements can accumulate in the thyroid of toxic animals.

If the animal is pure then healthy thyroid tissue should not be an issue, unless you are just over eating it. I eat the entire thyroid of the sheep I butcher and haven't had any issues with it.

How do you feel after eating a whole raw thyroid gland brother?

Do you feel an increase in metabolic rate?


I ask because I know people take dessicated Thyroid and Dessicated adrenals and it works so well then I can only imagine what raw glands can do for us.
