Good article warning people of the Dangers of overdosing on Iodine from several "Non-organic forms", such as Lugol's Solution and the Iodoral Tablets which are made with Iodine and Potassium iodide(SSKI) !
And a person may find "Many" articles with similar "Warnings", if "YOU" choose to do a search for them !
As Invincible has posted in an earlier post:----- I also read the post where Vulcanel originally posted that he recommends Iodoral tablets from Optimox, although I now see he has edited that statement. That recommendation did seem a little odd to me, considering Iodoral is non-organic iodine isn't it?
"IodoralR is a precisely quantified tablet form containing 5 mg iodine and 7.5 mg iodide as the potassium salt. ------To prevent gastric irritation,-------- the iodine/iodide preparation was absorbed unto a colloidal silica excipient; and to eliminate the unpleasant taste of iodine, the tablets were---- coat-ed with a thin film of pharmaceutical glaze"--- "Drug" !
Desn't sound like food either!
I'm sticking with the Norwegian kelp!!!!!!!!! I like the whole food, balanced aspect.
It's freezing cold in the UK right now, unlike some, I'm not able to stay indoors all the time as I am committed to 2 hours of dog walking every day. Today, I took 3 heaped tablespoons of kelp powder and have felt snug as a bug even when walking on ice and snow!
This time last year, before adding kelp to my healing protocol, I would have found any excuse to be sitting at home, by the fire. And even then, I would have felt cold inside.
Bring on the blizzards - I'm ready for them!!! :-)
As this above post by Invincible explains, there are much "Safer" ways to get your Iodine, in an Organic form, which is "NOT" Dangerous to "Your" Health and Well-being !
Consider if "YOU" have Children in the house and one of them got into a bottle of synthetic Iodine and were Poisoned, how would "YOU" feel about the synthetic Iodine, then ?
Whereas if you have the Natural food of kelp to supply you with the needed Iodine, you do not need to worry about a child eating too much of it and Causing them to become Poisoned from an overdose of Iodine !
First of all, there may be conditions where it may be advantages to have some iodine tablets or solution on hand as you have mentioned, for a emergency condition !
But it may "ALWAYS" be Best to try to supply your needs of Iodine thru Natural Foods, which have the needed Alkaline Minerals, as may be the case with Kelp !
And when a person is supplying their body with the needed Alkaline Minerals and Natural iodine on a regular Basis, then this person may not be Stressed as much as a person who is Low of the needed Alkaline Minerals, and thus the Stressed person may become Sick and Diseased , whereas the Healthy person may not have any problems !
And in the case of the person who was supplying their body what it may need every Day, this person may not need an emergency dose of iodine to keep living !
The interesting thing about this idea ,which some are bashing Calcium Hydroxide, Claiming it is non-organic and then turning around and trying to Sell people on the idea of Buying Non-organic Iodine (Iodoral)a Drug, is that by My suggestion of mixing the Calcium Hydroxide up as Diluted Lime water and then mixing it in the Alkalizing Drink, which has Blackstrap Molasses in it, This thus may Cause the Calcium Hydroxide to become an Organic form of Calcium again, which the body may easily utilize !
Whereas the Iodoral may still be Poisonous by ingesting a little too much !
Just check out the side effects by those who are Selling Iodoral, as cautioning it's use !
So this is a no-Brainer for anyone who still has any Common Sense left in their head !
For "Kelp" as I have suggested for a person to use to get their needed Iodine is still the "KING" of choices, if "YOU" choose to learn to have any "Compassion" for "YOUR" body !
"YOU" and some others give me a Good Laugh each day by some of "YOUR" ideas "Lacking" Common sense !
For "Common Sense" would tell a person , "WHY" go to all the trouble to "Process and Refine" Potassium Nitrate Brine to Extract Non- organic Iodine,which may be where much of the elemental Iodine may come from, as the commercial companies do "NOT" Process and Refine the "DRUG" Iodoral product from seaweed(kelp), as some are suggesting, which then does "Not" have "ANY" Combination of "Needed" Alkaline Minerals bound as a Complex to it anymore, to use as an Iodine source, when one may utilize "Kelp", which is Totally an organic Plant source of Natural Iodine !
The "ONLY" possible Reason that one would Promote Iodoral,over choosing Natural "Kelp" as the prefered Iodine source may be from a "Profit motive" !!!!!!!!!!!
Just follow the Money trail and "YOU" may know the Reason for people who may be Claiming "YOU" need to Listen to them and Buy "Drugs" such as Iodoral !
As curezone makes the statement about Educating instead of Medicating, I am just trying to up Hold this idea of "Truth" in proper Education about Iodine !
What each person chooses to decide to do for themself is their "own" choice !
mike you are either quite confused or uninformed! The hypocracy lies on the other end of this debate, those who spent months on end day after day critisizing calcium hydroxide and bashing Moreless and critiquing everyword he said are now promoting
a pharmaceutical type drug with the potential for coma and death! Who are the hypocrits??
Sorry but I place Lugols/Ioderol and Calcium Hydroxide in the same field - both inorganic forms of minerals (neither of them are pharmaceutical drugs).
I believe the main drive in the iodine discussion has to do with the high levels of iodine and absorption rate of iodine found in Lugol's, and its potential impact in health.
No one is undermining the benefits of Kelp.
You cannot say that is lugols is bad for you because its inorganic, when you advocate calcium hydroxide as a good source of calcium (this is NOT a cost issue, never is/was- moreless does not deviate from his precious lime, even though there are great food sources of calcium out there).
The SAME may apply to bashing calcium hydroxide and then choose ioderol over kelp as best thing to take.
HOWEVER, the discussion has to do with severe deficiency which most americans may have in iodine, and the benefits of high doses of highly absorbable inorganic iodine in a loading dose.
This argument is not possible with calcium hydroxide as it provides small amounts of calcium and not being used to treat severe calcium deficiency. I can get 15mgs of calcium (probably the amount in lime drink) in a few grams of sesame seeds.
Someone who is deficient in something would typically need high doses of that something for an extended period of time. It would be necessary to take a few pounds of kelp a day to slowly reestabilish suficiency.
Lugols is cheap and may be a quick and efficient way to boost those levels EVEN THOUGH I believe that natural organic sources of iodine are best in the long term and maintenance - just like how I believe calcium from food sources is best.
If I was calcium deficient I would probably take high doses of calcium citrate (inorganic forms) along with good sources of calcium foods.
I would not take calcium hydroxide since its availabilty is very low and large doses would negatively impact my health.

Since your cup is filled and you are so sure of the above statement why are you here?
The hypocrasy issue is apparently moot and of no real issue as far as learning and finding out what the Moreless drink and protocal is all about!
I suggest you either go to the Moreless website, read the archives and R sand R/N posts and testimonials if you are interested in learning a controversial yet very effective method of acquiring good health! Or not, tis your choice!
