Most doctors will tell you to take it every other day because they fear toxicity. Studies done in the 70's using only one form of Iodine
showed toxicity to the body at levels over 400mcg, it's almost as if they forgot that doctors in the early 1900's used Lugol
Solution which contained a balanced Iodine/Iodide solution, containing up to 37.5mg or nearly 100X more! Truth is, in Okinawa Japan, where people routinely live to over 90 and breast and Ovarian cancer rarely exists, they take in an average of 13.5mg of Iodine
via the seaweed. (Yes that's mg NOT mcg!) Studies have found that higher doses, like what's found in Iodoral can actually help prevent cancers and eliminate muscle pain.
