Iodine IS good. It's an essential nutrient. How you wish to get your Iodine is up to you. If you oppose the use of Lugol's and the like, that's up to you. You have posted previously that you have had negative experiences with iodine, could you provide some detail, please? Fleshing out the story a bit makes it seem more believable to readers:) And others could learn from your experiences!
Do you remember this thread, Mira? Did you ever watch the video that I posted to you? This video shows that with Iodine supplementation cretinism can be reversed in one generation. Now, how anyone could possibly dispute the value of a nutrient that can do that is beyond me.
And, contrary to allusions that Iodine supporters "gang up" on those that disagree, I was quite alone in that thread, and quite cordial:)
Now, here's the video again, please watch it, it really is quite mind-blowing:
"Kamidi lives on the slopes of Mount Merapi in Indonesia, one of Java's most active and dangerous volcanoes. He's three foot tall and has the tell-tale signs of cretinism: low hair line, bulging eyes, stunted growth - all associated with iodine deficiency, common in volcanic areas. Twenty years ago, Dr. Djokomoelyanto, a distinguished Indonesian endocrinologist injected large numbers of cretins in the surrounding area with iodine-infused oil. Kamidi was one of his patients. Within weeks, as Prof. Djokomoelyanto recounts in this moving Life programme, the cretins started feeling more energetic and lively. Kamidi eventually even married - another, taller, cretin, who'd also been treated with the iodine-infused oil, and they had two normal children."
