Bromine is in all those insecticides sprayed on grass, bugs, crops, in the air, organic may have residues, and regular food definatly has it, pools, hot tubs, carpets, sofas, fabrics treated with flame retardants etc etc. It seems we cant get away from it except we can get rid of it with iodine. I am starting to think that is the reason why most of us are taking the larges doses. And bromine likes to get stored in the fatty tisses that we are have, some more and some of us less. I am thin and really had a lot of bromine in my system. Hang in there, my friend. I get discouraged too but you are on the right track and not going down the toxic one.
