No, I haven't listened to the Mark Starr stuff yet, but soon.
Of course you're right, Iodine isn't the only answer to anyone's ills. Maybe it (and companion nutrients) are a giant breakthrough for some people, though, but I don't think it's been the biggest one for me. An important nutrient, to be sure. I may not have been in bad enough shape for iodine, probably because of age. If I hadn't done anything about the IBS and crap I was having in my early 20s, I wouldn't be doing quite so well here at 33.
"Dr. Mark Starr says that hypothyroidism type 2 is epidemic, and his basic premise is that those that exhibit the symptoms of hypo type 2 are those that would have died young if not for the fact that contagious illnesses have been pretty much wiped out with the use of antibiotics, vaccines, etc. "
I can totally see a relationship between metabolism, hypothyroidism, and type 2 diabetes. I mean, it's all the same thing, no doubt. And yes, I believe antibiotics and vaccines "work" on some people. Not without bad side effects.
By the way, we held off vaccinating, but I just wasn't sure I wanted the little boy to go without dtap, just because we have some kind of tetanus risk out here. Everyone who wants to, please pray. Next week, he gets his first dtap shot. I hope I don't regret it. I hope this is the only vaccine series we do. If I could get him the tetanus shot alone, I would.
