I see discussion on this thread seems to have ended several weeks ago. Since then, I have been doing quite a bit of reading over on Dr. Kruse's blog. It is now a little more clear to me that iodine is essential to our brain's health, our thyroid's health, and other organs. Basically, our whole body needs. I am now in agreement with Dr. Kruse and others on this thread, the best way to aquire it is by dietary means. And truly, the only means that has always been available is through seafood. Supplementation seems to be just that supplementation, since my land based diet is also iodine deficient. I am a true believer on the need for iodine as I am really amazed in some of the changes in my body that I have witnessed since supplementing iodine.
On Grizz, he is known over there and is tolerated as an enthusiastic proponent. He is not harshly criticized so much as he is gently corrected. I believe the tone taken in MDA to shout him down is wrong, on both this thread and the old thread. I believe that if you disagree with someone, it is more important for you to state your case more strongly and not succomb to the name calling and other insanity I saw here. When I was an empty vessel, he jump started my knowledge base. As that job of being a teacher, he did a fine job. He started me on a quest for more knowledge and provided some places for me to search. Yes, I supplemented rather high, but titrated back down and I thank JamesS for guiding me on that part of my magical tour. I think I learned something from everbody here. So I thank you all.
With that said, I am unsubscribing from this thread and bid you all a fond good day.
