    "A study by the University of Exeter and the Peninsula Medical School for the first time links thyroid disease with human exposure to perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). PFOA is a persistent organic chemical used in industrial and consumer goods including nonstick cookware and stain- and water-resistant coatings for carpets and fabrics."

    Florine is a halide like iodine. So Lugol's Iodine or Iodoral may be a good antidote.

    Old fashioned cast iron pans or vitreous (glass) enamel might be our best substitute for cookware.
