Even if they're not deficient and toxic, they don't represent me.
But, statistically, it's been shown that most study participants in all studies of the past 30 years are deficient in iodine. This we know.
And we also know that when the body is not Iodine deficient, not bromide laden, etc., that it doesn't respond to external stimuli the same way that brominated, Iodine deficient people do. For these reasons, among others, I agree to discount the vast majority of "studies", and especially those funded by the industries who profit from the results of the "studies".
