Did you know that despite its small size, the thyroid gland effects nearly every cell, tissue, and organ in the body? This is why a properly functioning thyroid is so important. Surprisingly, an estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, and yet, 60 percent are unaware that they have such a condition, according to the American Thyroid Association.
