However, is there merit to the detox theory? Grok would not have been exposed to the trash we are exposed to now, and his Iodine intake would have been considerably higher naturally (he lived by the sea, ate plant life that grew in more mineral rich soil, and ate animals that consumed more nutritious feed).
So I find myself being less concerned with how "natural" Iodine supplementation is, since our environment is no longer natural, and more concerned with safety: can I take Lugol's at the 50mg per day dosage without worrying about thyroid disease and pulmonary edema?!
I found it particularly concerning that, while the Japanese have reduced rates of cancer, they have higher than normal rates of thyroid disease.
