Yes, I’d really love to hear what Dr. Greger thinks about soy and thyroid. I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, on a low dose of Synthroid to keep my thyroid normal. When my husband and I went completely vegan a year ago (and thus increased our soy consumption greatly), my husband lost 40 lbs, and I gained 6! I also noticed that my thyroid began to slightly swell again. Please Dr. Greger, what do you think? I’d love to be able to eat edemame, and occasionally have some soy meat substitute a few times a week. Thank you.
Many therapeutic approaches are aimed at the EGFR. Cetuximab and panitumumab are examples of monoclonal antibody inhibitors . However the former is of the IgG1 type, the latter of the IgG2 type; consequences on antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity can be quite different.  Other monoclonals in clinical development are zalutumumab , nimotuzumab , and matuzumab . The monoclonal antibodies block the extracellular ligand binding domain. With the binding site blocked, signal molecules can no longer attach there and activate the tyrosine kinase.
Heavy consumption of the essential amino acid lysine (as indicated in the treatment of cold sores) has allegedly shown false positives in some and was cited by American shotputter C. J. Hunter as the reason for his positive test, though in 2004 he admitted to a federal grand jury that he had injected nandrolone.  A possible cause of incorrect urine test results is the presence of metabolites from other AAS, though modern urinalysis can usually determine the exact AAS used by analyzing the ratio of the two remaining nandrolone metabolites. As a result of the numerous overturned verdicts, the testing procedure was reviewed by UK Sport . On October 5, 2007, three-time Olympic gold medalist for track and field Marion Jones admitted to use of the drug, and was sentenced to six months in jail for lying to a federal grand jury in 2000.
