Hiya, Betorq. Really, this thread isn't bad if you skip the longer posts.
I think it's ironic that people in the iodine thread are demanding all sorts of mainstream research. Isn't MDA itself stuffed full of N=1 experimentation and people who fly in the face of CW? For all we know, Grizz could be the Gary Taubes of Iodine. (Now, if only Grizz were a little more systematic like Taubes was.)
I for one am more interested in the history of how Iodine came to be ignored. Or, more studies on bromine. It's been observed that breast cancer rates are higher in areas where iodine is depleted from the soil. What about areas with more bromine contamination? Any connection there? Or what about the connection between obesity and higher rates of breast cancer? Makes me wonder if both are caused by bread made from brominated flour: the wheat makes you fat and the bromine give you cancer...
Just stuff to think about.
