This study can be accessed at: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/content/abstract/24/5/752
A 10-month-old infant reared on a soybean product (Mull-Soy®) from birth developed a goiter and hypothyroidism, which was cured by the administration of 4 drops of Lugol's solution and the replacement of the soybean product by whole cow's milk.
The study suggested that a goitrogenic agent was present in the soybean product, which interfered with the thyroid hormones.
