  1. Hi Geetanjali,
    Welcome to Medimetry!!
    There are certain studies which have shown that cabbage and cauliflower contains a certain chemical which can hamper the absorption of iodine. In hypothyroidism, iodine absorption is already hampered and consumption of cabbage and cauliflower may lead to further reduced absorption.
    The study however also suggests that if these vegetables are cooked properly they may not interfere in the absorption. More so they are harmful if consumed daily and in huge quantities.
