Iodine is one of the most important yet misunderstood supplements I know of. I certainly didn't know anything about Iodine
until about 8 months ago ... when and if you start to studying it you'll get hooked believe me. I can't even begin to tell you how much it does in the body.
There are Iodine
receptors on every cell in the body. This idea that all you need is 150 mcg is WRONG ... that amount is only enough to keep you from getting a goiter.
The doctors at the Iodine
project (a 11 year plus ongoing project) have determined that about 95 percent of people are deficient in Iodine and that if we had Iodine sufficiency we would see the rates of many if not most cancer's drop significantly ... along with diabetes, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases.
I hope you'll take the time to look closely at the slide presentation and also go to godlikeproduction and click on page 9 to see the video presentation there as well. It is well worth it.
As for removing mercury and other elements ... all I can tell you is that the doctors at the Iodine project have stated this to be true and that they have also done urine test to prove that these elements were indeed being removed as Iodine is increased.
These doctors state that it may take 6 months to 3 years to reach Iodine sufficiency ... taking as much as 6.5 to 50 mg per day of Iodine/Iodide combination. This is due to the fact that Fluoride, Bromide and Chlorine will sit on the Iodine receptors until enough Iodine is taken to remove these toxic elements and Iodine can take it's rightful place.
