The BWH Iodine debate first surfaced around the time the Moreless decided to call his Black-Walnut tree an Iodine tree and attempted to market the product as iodine. I think it's all just resurrecting an old irritant to Battie. But I do recall that even The V finally acknowledged that indeed BW has an Iodine content. The matter (then) appears to be more about the content in BW vs. products such as Lugols or Iodoral, et cet. The matter has more to do with passion than data, sources, and facts.
