I believe this lady was the ward panchayat at our meeting in Pabupura. She made me give her my water bottle and then asked for my bracelet. Check out her goiter. It was scary and bigger than her face. She said she has 10 children...tried to get sterilized after 5 kids but they wouldn't operate on her b/c of her goiter. Goiter has been there for 25 years.

Do you see many people with goiters? Is it a deficiency in their diets?

Thankfully this is the only goiter I've seen. I think it's from hyperthyroidism.
