Diet--anyone told to avoid broccoli and cauliflower?

Besides PTC, I have Hashimotos and even though my thyroid is out now, my doc said to avoid cruciferous vegetables. I can't find good data that says these are bad, though I found one article that said to cook them instead of eating them raw. Anyone else get diet advice?

Wasn't this advice constrained to an specific point in time where you would or could be doing a procedure with iodine, like WBS or RAI ?

No, it was general diet advice. But I have read that cooking the veggies decreases the goitrogens in the foods and we always eat them cooked. In my research over the past weeks, I have seen nothing showing any particular diet is mandatory, other than 'eating healthy', but my endo suggested to avoid cruciferous vegetables.
