What great learners you are !! We have seen so many people find relief over the years just from adding a little supplementary amount of a mineral, iodine, that is soooo necessary for sooo many things going on in the body. Those of you good learners, you know what I am talking about, I am preaching to the choir on that one :)
Learn from those who are the non-believers, don't let them get you into a "fight" on their turf, the ground they attempt to define. He who defines - wins. You see this in much propaganda, people trying to define things that are fictions, like ADHD, and a whole bunch more of fictions.
Some people just aren't ready for knowledge, or can't handle the truth they resist. They want to fight, and one tool in their box is to re-define, or create new words - think Smiegel from Tolkein's Lord of the Rings. Such mindset applies not only to a simple mineral like iodine, but also to potassium for example, in which 98% of the people are deficient in. And many other aspects of your life, like "Wolff -Chaikoff" effect. The list is quite long, of the bulllshhhit you been fed. Try to tell them that, and a certain fraction want to resist, fight you. While at the same time, a certain fraction smile and say "ok" I'll try it... When it is just a mineral our bodies need, there is no downside to trying it, and for bodies deficient in it, it is only natural that things will get better WITH the thing we need. A 4 year old can understand it !!
The issue is, to try to figure out the percent of people who want to argue and fight with simple concepts. This is the brainwashing I am thinking , that confuses the masses, including politicians. Why is it some fraction are open, while others are closed and want to fight ? Maybe there is no answer, I just wonder about these things.
At any rate, I enjoy watching everybody on here learn and share, along with me, I am but a student also of course, and I never quit learning :) What a magical place we live in, to explore, create, discover
