Fluoridated Tap Water and Hypothyroidism (Fluoride in Drinking Water, Low Thyroid): Bottled Water or Filtered Water Better?

I have been hypothyroid for about 23 years. I have been on the meds for it since 1994. I am in the middle of untangling the whole mess, and trying to fix it myself rather than sit and take the misinformed junk conventional doctors try to impose on me. I thought I'd make notes here in case anybody else may benefit. This is a very common ailment and (I believe) triggers a domino effect of other auto-immune problems. Or at least they are all interrelated somehow, because when I find a natural cure for one (edema), it usually eliminates another (asthma).

This is a massive subject with very informative and long-standing websites available. Here's a good one to start with:

Success Lies in the Quads

New York Times article: Thigh-Popping Success on a Bike Lies in the Quads...

Namely that cyclists, particularly track sprinters, rely on quadriceps, in all their massive, veined glory, to power them to success. Förstemann’s thighs, each comparable to a watermelon, measured 34 inches — wider than his waist.
