If I remember correctly I did read that the Japanese intake of Iodine has gone to around 40-50mgs in the past 20 yrs or so..
Must find the references..
Also they refer to the standard Japanese diet,of the people living on the seashores..
Note-I might add that many Japense seaweed products seem to contain some kind of additives(I do know that the Koreans as wellas the Chinese do have Mono-Sodium-Glutamat (Natrium Glutamat) in many of their products..)
And Koreans as well as Chinese also consume seaweeds,etc..-anyone that knows of studies done for these population including Taiwan?
Note-after going back to this thread-I do think it is a sort of a mixed one-support/debate.I apologize for the confusion here.My mistake..
However I am not negating the effects of iodine,lugol etc..heck I am using Lugol 5%and do feel the effects,this I cannot deny them.
And yes Lugol 5% does makes your hairs grow back and tend to make your grey hairs go away...
