I'm concerned when people say things like "well, I take a lot of it and feel fine" because long-term toxicity can take a while to emerge.

    I'm not telling people they shouldn't take iodine--I realize that there are reasons to supplement, and I've read some compelling evidence in credible journals for moderate supplementation particularly for those who don't use iodized salt or consume seafood/seaweed regularly. But it is vitally important to be aware that taking too much of something beneficial can become harmful. Long-term high doses of iodine may cause significant and potentially irreversible health problems, including permanent damage to the thyroid.

    I haven't looked at all of these, but those I looked at don't leave me overly concerned. Many involve much more dangerous forms of iodine, like amiodarone. Others involve iodine causing (or exacerbating) autoimmune thyroid damage, which we know can happen if you take iodine without selenium. The Peace Corps workers were in Niger, which a quick google search suggests is an area of low selenium.

    Breadsauce,

    Now you are LYING again. I will post this again just for you:

    EVERYONE IS EXPECTED TO DO IODINE THEIR WAY.

    TO EACH THEIR OWN


    Whether that is LOW DOSE iodine, Seafood & Seaweed, or whatever it is you want to do.

    Kapish?

    The Brownstein Iodine Protocol is for those of us who choose to do it.
    Kapish?

    I stopped taking my daily 12.5mg Iodoral a couple of days ago, and have a slightly tender throat when I swallow.

    Could be anything, I'll post any developments though. I've taken a range of doses and forms of iodine (Iodoral/Lugols) having worked my way up to and back down from 50mg over the course of just under two years.

    DO NOT SAY THAT I AM LYING simply because I think you are a very domineering and argumentative person (which you are proving yourself to be)

    You don't own this thread and you are upsetting people with your constant trolling / abuse.

    You have to accept that a different point of view is as valid (or more so) than yours. KAPISH??? (whatever that means...)

    I'm confused. You quoted yourself?

    Cori & Breadsauce have been added to my IGNORE list with their buddy PaleoBird.

    Their constant complaining & crying are adding nothing worthwhile to this thread.
