lugols is called STRONG Iodine Solution. the "strong" part is the elemental Iodine (not iodiDe) which can be quite harsh, corrosive and highly oxidative. it is used to treat FBD and ovarian cysts because it takes free Iodine to break them up.
i have found dosage limits on Lugols to be up to 300mg, 600mg if magnets are affixed to the bottle. KI alone has no such limit and can be taken by the gram if necessary.
i love MH, i simply disagree with his stance on iodine. i have way more experience with it than he does. but dont throw the baby out with the bath water. he and brenda(his wife) and their herbs have helped me a lot.
