Maybe because you can't fit a bottle of iodine in a multi.
Personally, I would take mercury poisioning over death via iodine anyday.
Symptoms of iodine dosing may include but are not limited to:
eye lid twitching
tingling in hands or feet
dark thoughts (e.g., there is no reason to live)
depression (e.g., there is no reason to get out of bed)
mouth and tongue sores and cuts or "sore mouth"
"different" acne,"bromide acne," "acne-like eruptions" without "coniform." (Some iodine
users found zinc helps bromide acne.)
numbness in hands and feet
leg and hip ache (feels like arthritis)
permanent damage to your intestines and brain
delirium and other short-term problems
odd swallowing sensation (reported in old medical literature as "swollen glottis")
body odor (bromos is Greek for stench)
unusual urine odor
ureteral spasm, frequent urination (mistaken for urinary infection)
breast tenderness (transient symptom reported to resolve)
I think I would rather develop a crack cocaine addition, it sounds way more pleasant.

Well call me cheap or weird, or both (coz both would apply :-), but I just go barefoot as much as possible, which is a lot of the time(self employed, work @ home). Vibrams seem contrived, expensive & 'trendy' to me. But maybe not. I've never used them personally so my opinion is not based on a real experience & so many people luv 'em, so maybe they are great & I'm missing out.
As for seaweed, it's a food you can find walking along the shoreline in the morning. Like a fruit on a tree limb or a berry on a bush. So how much more primal/paleo could a food be?
As for seaweed being toxic, its the same argument made for liver. Seaweed is a filter for the ocean but, as I understand it, not much if any of those toxic substances remain in the seaweed's structure. I've been a fan of ocean & fresh water algaes since about 20 years. Some solid science in the past several decades & a thousand or so years of Asian food culture behind the medicinal use of seaweed & spirulina & chlorella. No links, but Google is a click or a clack away.

But the minute I get home, they're off and I'm barefoot. Partly because I can't stand them anymore, and partly because I don't want the gross crap I've walked through to get on the carpet.
My son (the mechanic) saw a pic of Mark's feet in Vibram a while back and said "Oh yeah, those are the shoes the douchebag guys wear when they bring their car in." So I guess not all the people that wear them are as cool as the people here...

Paleo-bread would probably be a good transitioning thing for him for when he "cooks" b/c he's lazy and won't cook. He thinks things need to be easy to make and ready in minutes - like mac& cheese or Tombstone, etc. And he gets bored easily. It's saddening, really.
But he's coming around - albeit slowly. He has given up soda and stopped eating Yoplait yogurt b/c of the sugar content... but freezer pops, ice cream and pudding snacks fill the voids.

I wouldn't touch paleobread with a bargepole or liver (bad experience as a child) nor pate unless I made it myself. I never saw the point of going low carb or Paleo/Primal and eating approximations of pizza or muffins.
OH isnt low carb let alone Paleo/Primal and he complained that I was trying to dictate his diet for the rest of his life. However when I decided to go organic, he was enthusiastic about that, to my surprise.
He now has organic Weetabix and organic Italian cornflakes instead of stuff with additives. There are organic cheese and ham pizzas, beef lasagne and cottage pie in the freezer and tins of organic baked beans and packets of organic biscuits in the larder. I feel better because he isn't eating additives, he likes better tasting food and trying new things and the side benefit is that he's eating fewer carbs because so far Golden Wonder isn't making organic Pot Noodles nor Hunger Break making organic all day breakfast.
Going organic might be a good strategy for other people too ??????
