    While I do appreciate the author for giving the tips and details about the food to be taken for the thyroid patients and in this regard I wish to state that this disease is more present in Vegetarian people and for them taking egg and sea foods would be banned item.

    Mr. Mohan: I think that if our health is a priority area, we can try to change our food-habit to some extent. Egg is taken by many vegetarians and it is extremely pocket-friendly.

    However, it is my personal opinion.

    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.
