Perhaps you misunderstood. MH was talking about iodine before the iodine forums and cz. I happen to know becuase I've conversed with him about it. I made no suggestion he discovered it before Lugol himself or chemists discovered the periodic chart.
We are all zealots here on curezone. Zealous for health and natural healing. I don't see why you take offense to the word. The big difference here is that the iodine supp forum is zealous about dosing on drug/chemcial based iodines for healing which is contrary to curezone mantra (educating instead of medicating) and something I strongly disagree with. I'm sorry you see no reason in that.
