Dietary goitrogens are important for the development of endemic goitre, especially in iodine deficiency areas. Due to the increasing nitrate exposure of humans, the influence of dietary nitrate was tested in three groups of 9 six week old piglets.The thyroid hormones and Sm-C/IGF-I levels of nitrate exposed animals (T4:<10; T3: 0.8±0.2, rT3:0.3±0.1 nmol/l… CONTINUE READING
