By the way Steve, what is your connection to Curezone? You are simply copying and pasting the same old BS posted on the Curezone iodine board. And you were using Trapper's line of "iodine makes everything work better" earlier. So what troll are you over on the iodine board? Sylvette? You sound an awful lot like him. He also bashes people more than he presents evidence because he loves to stir the pot then sit back and watch the resulting conflicts as well.
Furthermore, if you bothered to do some real research you would have found that the decreased rate of breast cancer in Japan has been linked to the high intake of phytoestrogens, not iodine, in the traditional Japanese diet. Most of the phytoestrogens come from their intake of soy products and seaweeds. Seaweeds also contain immune stimulating polysaccharides that help prevent cancer in large part by helping the body fight off cancer viruses.
In addition, you are contradicting yourself in a way. You are claiming a high rate of goiter and breast cancer due to a deficiency of iodine. Do you know what the primary food is in Iceland? Ocean fish, full of iodine!!! When I was over there the cost of fish was around the equivalent of $2.00 a pound. So it was the least expensive meat over there. Ground beef was the equivalent of $8.00 a pound and steak $15.00 a pound. One of the things I heard over and over from the people over there was the high cost of living so they primarily bought fish as their main diet. Lamb is the other big meat over there, which was a little cheaper than ground beef. But the sheep feed on grass, as do the very limited cattle, which pick up iodine from the ocean spray since the only pasture is along the coastal edges. The interior of Iceland is considered pretty much uninhabitable consisting mainly of glaciers, black sand deserts, rivers, and moss covered hills and flat lands. So the only grazing areas are along the coastal edges where the grass and other vegetation pick up iodine from the ocean spray.
Again, this is why you should rely more on real research as evidence rather that bogus propaganda sites that just happen to fit your needs.

The only test that I can think of that may have some resemblance of reliability would be the iodine loading test.
I really don't buy in to the whole fluoride causing widespread iodine deficiency thing. It is possible if we are ingesting larger amounts of fluoride, but we also obtain a lot of iodine from various sources such as dairy, beef, seafoods, fortified foods, etc. And the thyroid tends to hold on to iodine more tightly when levels start dropping. Along the same lines it has also been shown that bromine can replace some of the iodine in thyroid hormones without disrupting the function of the hormones. So the body does have some protective mechanisms in place.

There. Was that so hard?
But no, you will refuse because you you delight in burying people with insults, intimidation and Mad Dog Attacks. We will argue over this issue until the end of time. So please save us all from this grief & torture by responding with a simple 5 letter message. People are getting tired of this BS from you.
What is the maximum level of Lugols iodine in mg that you consider to be safe for most people?
[/quote=JamesS]Actually they do when you post real evidence that prove their bogus claims wrong. Especially when that real evidence is interfering with their sales of iodine.[/quote]
AHA ! There we have it. James admits to trying to destroy iodine over at IndiaDevine, too. The guys at Curezone were correct. You really do HATE iodine and that is why you refuse to answer my question. So admit it, you were telling those people that iodine was poisonous, too, weren't you? Don't lie because I will find out.
