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 !
Choose Life or Death this Day !
Smile Tis your choice.
