1. We don't need to take extra iodine
2. We could take a little extra iodine
3. We could take a lot of extra iodine
disclaimer: I do not take any Iodine supplements of any kind. This would appear to put me in camp #1. And that's fine, live and let live etc. BUT, if I start posting frequently telling everybody they don't need to take any iodine at all, and someone posts various studies etc that appear to show the benefits of iodine, to my mind that puts an extra onus on me to respond to criticisms people have of my position. What should I do?
a. Ignore their posts, disparage them personally, maybe even block them so I don't have to be affronted by unwelcome information?
b. Attemp to refute the information (either a poor study, testing the wrong thing, or a source with no credibility)
c. Change my position based on the new information
What I see in this thread is people in the mega-iodine camp adopting positiong A. And I can't respect that. It just seems too much like this article on political correctness.
When I see someone attempting to shout out their opposition (rather than debate the merits of the points raised) then that sets off a flashing red light in my head that their position is not well founded.Originally Posted by the article said
I have not seen anywhere in this thread anything that comes close to alleviating my concerns about iodine toxicity. It was posted early on, but ignored. When I asked again, Grizz responded by passively aggressively suggesting that I pick a doctors protocol and go with it. What kind of response is that?
This annoys me, because if there's something to Iodine, I want to know about it too and adapt accordingly.

Perhaps those of us who are actually using Iodine could start a new thread so we could share our experiences with each other. Then the rest of you could stay here and complain about anything and everything like you already do. What? You want answers? You think you're entitled? When it comes to iodine, YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!
I mean, I've got most of you on "Ignore" already but I still have to wade through your toxic comments when someone else quotes your posts. So tired of y'all wasting my time when I come here to read about iodine and related topics. Just talk to your doctors if you want "valid" iodine advice. You don't want to consider the views of the doctors who are already successfully treating people with serious medical issues so I have no idea how to help you here. In fact, you shouldn't take iodine at all--just eat lots of Kelp and Seaweed and leave the rest of us alone while we try to detox bromides and halides.
I don't plan to change my point of view anytime soon just because the paid Big Pharma Whore--"Quackwatch"--says so.
I think Owl had the best advice for all of us--get tested so then we each know how we're doing with or without iodine supplementation. In the meantime, I would like a safe place to post my questions or results with other interested and/or experienced ones. Is this too much to ask???? Apparently it is.
so posting alternating points of view on the same topic is harshing your buzz?
yeah you are

I don't see the need to have to cite scientific studies to defend my own self-experiment. I just want a place to share information without all these judgements. The mega-dose people are well aware of the "so-called dangers" of mega-doses in short time; in fact, they do remind those who want to detox to start real slow, at low dosages, and listen to your body, AND consult your doctor if you are more comfortable with it.

I have a better idea. All of us who are serious about iodine move over to the Curezone. The moderators over there will NOT tolerate Trolls. They get kicked off the board on their 1st whiney, nit picking, crying post, IMO, Poopbird and her Flock of Trolls could not survive one day at the Curezone.
I am already a member over there, so is Zophie. Here is the link:
Iodine Supplementation Support Forum by VWT Team, Page 265, Vulcanel, Wombat & Trapper/kcmo:
We just abandon Marks Daily Apple and let the Trolls rip this thread into little pieces as they see fit.
See y'all over at the Curezone.
