    Well we can't be having that, can we? Ad hominim attacks seem to be in fashion, and anyone who disagrees with me is clearly a rabid baby eating sugar snorting leper with bad breath, poor fashion sense, and acne. Probably as a result of using the wrong amount of iodine

    I was actually agreeing with you...! I think your comment is totally right.

    I know. And I was exercising what passes for my sense of humour

    I saw someone saying on Curezone that it's the chloride that flushes the bromine, & I've seen it mentioned here a few times, but not with any references that I recall. The trouble is the only study I've seen on the subject concludes that it's the sodium doing the flushing, not the chloride http://www.biomed.cas.cz/physiolres/pdf/54/54_639.pdf

    Indeed. Bananas are often recommended for lowering blood pressure due to their potassium content. This is quite interesting http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti...00474-0081.pdf

    Exactly, which is just as you'd expect.

    Well, there goes that theory...

    Hmm. That still leaves open the possibility of taking large doses of potassium with your large doses of sodium, if it's just blood pressure that's at issue from sodium intake. Has anyone with sodium related blood pressure issues tried dosing themselves with equally ludicrous amounts of potassium at the same time? If so, did it make any difference?

    I wouldn't take one study on rats as definitive, but it should make you question the source of the 'chloride theory'. It may be there are other studies that back it up, or it could just be something somebody wrote on the internet, which was then believed by hordes of gullible people.

    I don't know either way, but there are good strains and bad strings of E.Coli and Streptocaccus. The E.Coli in your stomach is good, but you don't want cow's E.Coli. The streptocaccus in yogurt cultures is good, but not the one you obtain when walking through hospitals....

    I was surfing this morning and found this from the Linus Pauling Institute:

    Iodine excess

    It is rare for diets of natural foods to supply more than 2,000 mcg of iodine/day, and most diets supply less than 1,000 mcg of iodine/day. People living in the northern coastal regions of Japan, whose diets contain large amounts of seaweed, have been found to have iodine intakes ranging from 50,000 to 80,000 mcg (50-80 mg) of iodine/day (1).
    And this:

    Acute toxicity

    Acute iodine poisoning is rare and usually occurs only with doses of many grams. Symptoms of acute iodine poisoning include burning of the mouth, throat, and stomach; fever; nausea; vomiting; diarrhea; a weak pulse; and coma (6).
