Thyroid concentrates iodine. Prostate concentrates zinc. Thymus concentrates manganese. Each organ concentrates some mineral or metal. Parathyroid concentrates boron.
Early work of Koch showed result of parathyroidectomy, leads to anaerobic metabolism. Many erroneously believe parathyroid function is to regulate calcium, that is wrong. Dr. Koch showed injection of pure water had same effect on parathyroidectomized dogs as calcium injeciton , also verified by Paton in Scotland. Most likely the case is that parathyroid puts out its own hormone and not just calcitonin, rather, some molecule with multiple boron moieties present, akin to how thyroid puts out T4. Jorge Flechas MD stated "the lack of Iodine is a promoter of cancer" and to me now, the lack of boron is even more of a promoter of cancer than the lack of iodine, based on the work Dr. Koch did 100 years ago, it is very clear. This is partly why cancers are increasing, because the soils are devoid of boron after being repeatedly farmed and commercial "fertilizers" lack boron. California, they have FOUR different crop yields each year, yet where is the boron replacement ?? Nichts. California vegetables are worthless, wertlos.
Lack of boron promotes glycolysis, this is proven. Glycolysis is anaerobic metabolism. Anaerobic metabolism is cancer. To prove or disprove my statement, look to populations where daily boron intake is naturally higher than other countries. Examples are western turkey, and Israel, daily intake about 20mg or more in those places. But also look to Japan, I do not know the number, maybe nobody does about "boron in Japan" but supposedly they have low Breast Cancer rate some have attributed to Iodine intake, but I have doubts about validity of the statements we all believed from the Iodine docs. I need to know how much boron is in avg. Japanese diet before any conclusion can be made about iodine being sole factor. Dr. Koch's work on parathyroidectomized dogs is worth reading, for those interested in understanding the real deal.
