Re: Please comment on Dr. Mercola's Iodine article

He is still trying to frighten people away from iodine, as usual, as proven by his unchanging dribble:
"Some, like Dr. Flechas insists severe Iodine deficiency is rampant, while others claim this is not the case at all, and that taking higher doses of Iodine can be harmful. I don’t proclaim to have the answer to this question... There’s no doubt you need iodine. But it’s difficult to say precisely how much. I suspect the dosages recommended by Dr. Flechas, Dr. Brownstein, and others, may be too high, so I would encourage you to do your own research"

If that were not enough to disparage iodine, here comes his usual dribble to close the coffin on Dr. Flechas message:

".....a recently published study has cast some doubts on high-dose Iodine supplementation. The study, published December 28, 2011 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition2, randomly assigned one of 12 different dosages of iodine (ranging from 0 to 2,000 mcg/day) to healthy adults for four weeks.

When diet was factored in, those taking 400 mcg/day were receiving a total of about 800 mcg of iodine per day.

At doses at and above 400 mcg of supplemented iodine per day, some of the study participants developed subclinical hypothyroidism, which appeared to be dose dependent. At 400 mcg/day, five percent developed subclinical hypothyroidism; at the highest dose—2,000 mcg/day—47 percent of participants were thus affected. Subclinical hypothyroidism refers to a reduction in thyroid hormone levels that is not sufficient to produce obvious symptoms of hypothyroidism (such as fatigue, dry skin, Depression or weight gain, just to mention a few common tell-tale signs).

So, these findings suggest it might not be wise to get more than about 800 mcg of iodine per day, and supplementing with as much as 12-13 mg (12,000-13,000 mcg’s) could potentially have some adverse health effects."

Dr. Mercola is killing the messenger, Dr. Flechas, as best he can. This is not new, and has been his trademark for years. As usual, 800mcg is Mercola's usual MAXIMUM SAFE DOSE for iodine.

IMO, he is clearly just another paid shill by the Drug Companies, out to destroy iodine and he continues to fight iodine by using his dirty tricks, as can be clearly seen in the above quotes where he is trying to make Dr. Flechas appear to be dead wrong & a quack.
