Don't worry Mjj, it's not you it's them. Iodine supporters are very thick-headed and refuse to believe that there can be any adverse reactions to taking iodine, even after countless posts from personal experiences of those who have adverse reactions. Their only defense is to say that everyone who posts to having adverse reactions is just a liar and a phony poster, other than that they have no answer.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I have no doubt that Iodine can be useful to some people and I also have no doubt that Iodine can be very harmful for other people. One man's medicine is another man's poison.
I don't believe every single person that posts here or other places, but I do look at trends and I think we can learn a lot if we pay attention to trends. I see a trend of many people having great benefits from taking iodine and I also see a trend of many other people having terrible reactions to it. I don't think either of these trends should be ignored, but iodine supporters only want to look at the trend of people who have benefits from iodine and ignore the ones with adverse reactions.
