Sadly, this is true of the entire Paleo / Primal thing. I would love my parents and sisters to cut out grains and seed oils, but they won't listen. They can SEE how much weight I've lost, asthma improved, no steroid inhalers any more, no psoriasis etc - but they just say "well, it works for you, but it won't work for everyone". So sad.
And so many of my friends in their fifties and onwards are all beginning to suffer with problems which I am sure could be alleviated, if not mended. But as you say, you can't MAKE anyone do anything.

Dr. Kruse focuses on Iodine with his best report yet.
See the paragraph, "THE KEY MINERAL TO HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: IODINE"
BG 5: PARADIGM DRIFTS PARADIGM SHIFTS: EPI-PALEO? - Jack Kruse
Dr. Kruse is firing on all cylinders on this report,

I definitely get the idea of needing to take Iodine as an offset to the other Halides. What I am curious about is the mechanism that Iodine uses that causes Bromide to be removed from the body (our cells, thyroid, whatever) and therefore detoxed out of the body. How does taking more Iodine force the Bromide out. Doesn't Bromide force the Iodine out?

What I am wondering is why Iodine does this? What is the actual mechanism? I would like more than "we need it because it offsets the bad chemicals." HOW does Iodine offset the bad chemicals? How does more Iodine win the battle in the body?

But piling on the panic about cancer is just unnecessary. Please take a breath. I know you care about her and want her to be well but scaring her with medically unfounded hype isn't helping.
And you screaming in your letter about "Please don't let them cut off her breasts!", only makes you look more like a madman and less like the "expert" you proclaim yourself in the letter to be. That is not the medical protocol advocated by anyone other than an isolated ill-informed hack. (As cori and I have both posted about previously).

Lizzy, Vital Choices has sardines that are totally healthy. Many well known doctors recommend their products. I've bought their seafood for yrs and always impressed.

As usual you are trying to put words in my mouth that I never said. I NEVER said that FBD causes cancer. NO ONE has said that, not even the iodine doctors! Kapish?
The iodine doctors do say this:
"women who have fibrocystic disease are susceptible to breast cancer"
"There may be then a significant chance the cells may change into a cancer cell."
Derry. Iodine and the Breast -- Research
Dr. David Derry Answers Reader Questions -- Breast Cancer, Tamoxifen, Thyroid & Weight Loss
Translation: There is simply a higher risk of breast cancer in women with FBD. This does not mean they WILL get cancer. Do you understand? Got it?
My DIL is worried because her mother died from Breast Cancer, after the doctors were messing around with her for 10 years !
I would appreciate it if you stopped LYING about what people say. You are always doing this to piss people off. STOP DISTORTING WHAT PEOPLE SAY!
It is our experience that doctors routinely tell their FBD patients to cut off their breasts. Would you like me to post those testimonials YET AGAIN? Better yet YOU go read the testimonial - you know where they are at. Doctors won't recommend iodine, so mastectomy is all they know. Pray tell us what doctors prescribe to CURE fibrocystic breasts.

First of all if you're going to call me Paleobirdie I'm going to call you Grizzyface, OK?
It's nice to hear you say that, "There is simply a higher risk of breast cancer in women with FBD. This does not mean they WILL get cancer."
This is sane and very sound and I'm glad to hear you say it. It is also not what you were saying upthread but then we can let that go. As long as you aren't off chasing fictional "chemtrails" and Melinda Gates plots, we will know you are back in your right mind.
Could you please say that one more time for the people being panicked by earlier pages, something like, "HEY EVERYBODY, FBD DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER!"? Complete with lots of caps and bold type. That would be great.

@t2t, thank you for the information. I don't think DH would be against the "side effect" you described at all! You said you cut your dose down to 1 milligram? Is it liquid or powder?
@breadsauce, DH also has psoriasis. What amounts of the Vit K, D3, and Vit A were you taking?
Thanks again! Where do you buy this stuff?

I hope your DIL gets better.
