Stress may exacerbate an underlying thyroid condition, interrupting the normal rate at which thyroid hormones are produced and released. Put exercise on your to-do list.

Scan for anti-cancer foods at the grocery store. Pick up cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cabbage, bok choy) that have ample anti-cancer phytochemicals. Include foods rich in carotenoids (carrots and canataloupes), ellagic acid (strawberries, pomegranates), and resveratrol (red grapes, cocoa, peanuts) that negate free radicals. Fiber-rich whole grains and folate-rich foods curb tumor growth, too.
