Perchlorate is a contaminant commonly found in groundwater, surfac, water and soil. Dangerous levels of perchlorate contamination have been found in drinking water in at least 30 states. The chemical is typically used in rocket fuel, fireworks, and manufacturing for national defense purposes. The Federal Defense Department has used perchlorate heavily since the 1950's, and much of the current water contamination is due to the Department's dumping.

Perchlorate & Thyroid Gland Problems
Studies indicate large amounts of perchlorate affect a person's thyroid. The chemical interferes with the thyroid's ability to absorb iodine from the bloodstream. In adults, the thyroid helps to regulate metabolism by releasing hormones. In children, the thyroid helps in proper development.
Since perchlorate impedes proper function of the thyroid, contamination can lead to thyroid diseases such as hypothyroidism. Impairment of the thyroid in pregnant women can have negative implications for their unborn children. Perchlorate contamination can cause behavioral changes, delayed development and decreased learning ability.
