Very interesting! I've only spent a little time looking into the iodine issue. I did see a post linking to a video and a comment about bread making using bromide (if I remember correctly) instead of iodine (seem to remember it may have been you that posted it). Also, that would make sense about the thyroid and libido. Again, I'm not super educated on that aspect, however ashwaghanda is a powerful libido enhancer for both men and women but can cause hyperthyroidism in people with thyroid issues. Very interesting stuff!
