James will never answer your question - he is a troll intent on confusing everyone.So, after sorting out all of this malarkey of going back and forth ten thousand times, what would be an appropriate amount of Iodine to take.
Here is your answer:
The Guide by Dr. Buist
No matter where you look, there is conflicting information on iodine. It is the Wild, Wild, Wild West where no 2 doctors can agree on ANYTHING except that iodine is required for good health. They can't agree on the type of iodine or how much.
The answer for most of us is to follow the doctor that has done the most research for the longest period of time. This means Dr. Brownstein, a leader in the 2007 Iodine Medical Conference.
He has successfully treated THOUSANDS of patient over the last 7 years and documented them in his research reports.
Who are "Most of Us?"
* Yahoo Iodine Group 6.600 members with The Iodine Guide
* Breast Cancer Choices Group 650 members
* Curezone Group with more than a 5 year track record
Poor little Troll James can't shine a candle to Dr. Brownstein's medical research over the past 5+ years. Who are you going to believe.... James who has been thrown out of 2 discussion groups for being a Troll or Dr. Brownstein?
James is just like all other trolls who delights in confusing everyone with his BS.
You people are letting James send you into mass confusion.

And if you question the safety of iodine at all they go after you big time. Look at how they went after me for posting an article linking the iodine in milk to acne in some sensitive individuals. Wombat in particular would not let up. She wanted to make sure that I never posted any potential negative side effect of iodine again.
Funny thing is that you keep falsely referring to me as a pharmaceutical shill since I don't agree with high dose iodine. What do you think the iodine products they are selling are Grizz? Yes, they are pharmaceutical drugs. And like the pharmaceutical companies they are doing everything in their power to make sure the side effects of their drugs are not widely known no matter how many people get hurt. So the real pharmaceutical shill here is you Grizz.
The researchers were treating patients with radioactive iodine, which really has not a thing to do with Lugol's Solution of iodine. Short of taking a one-way trip to Fukushima Prefecture in Japan, I sincerely doubt if the average person on this thread would be able to self-treat with radioactive iodine.
Also, I take it that you also consider the rat studies on bromine half life from Kreiger's Handbook that you posted as evidence to be invalid as well since they used radioactive methyl bromide? Or does your rule only apply to evidence you disagree with?
James, I won't get into a tit for tat argument with you. You have been at great pains to ensure everyone here knows your opinion, and where it is at odds with those who propose iodine as a partial solution to some problems. Your opinion is acceptable, as long as it doesn't denigrate another honest opinion also formed by evidence. You have been at great pains to demonize iodine and exonerate bromine. Pardon us if we got the wrong impression.
