Best Health Reference Thyroid Gland Books 2016
Your thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck, right above your collarbone and under your chin.
The Thyroid Gland is one of your endocrine glands, which make hormones.
Thyroid hormones control the rate of activities in your body, how fast you burn calories and how fast your heart beats.
In addition, the Thyroid Gland influences almost all of the metabolic processes in your body.
