Note that the good Dr. recommends no more than 50mg Iodine unless you have an iodine deficiency disease, then he recommends 100mg or more.
Participants have discovered that it takes 100mg or more to fully detoxify from bromide, fluoride & chlorine. Once detox has been completed and the body is 90% or more iodine sufficient, then iodine supplements can be reduced to a maintenance level, which Brownstien suggests 25 to 50mg daily. This amount is required to prevent new toxins from taking over our cells. Every cell in our body requires iodine. Take the iodine loading test to see how toxic you are and to see how deficient you are: http://www.hakalalabs.com/testing.html
Don't believe everything you read. Be careful what you read on the internet, there are gross lies & distortions about iodine designed to frighten people & boost the sale of expensive drugs. I suggest focusing only on iodine reports from qualified Doctors: Abraham, Brownstein, Cousens, Flechas, Derry, Davis, & Tenpenny for honest & accurate information about iodine. Google Search for doctorsName iodine.
