Such relationships probably account for the famous "Derbyshire neck," an enlargement of the thyroid gland that looks like a swollen neck, formerly found in inhabitants of fluorite (calcium fluoride) areas in central England (Hetzel 1989). Indeed, it has been argued that, in China, goiter is promoted by elevated levels of four elements that adversely influence the thyroid: calcium, magnesium, fluorine, and lithium (Tan 1989)."
