Somehow, I don't think those iodine docs are making much money off their most ardent supporters. OTOH, w/o personal experience, I can only speculate how much money nuclear medicine can make off radioactive iodine.
    Something does not have to be expensive to be poisonous. I can go out and pick oleander for free, which is very poisonous and can kill me.

    You also don't seem to understand simple economics. A person can make more money selling a larger volume of a product cheaply than they can selling less of the product at a much higher price. And by convincing your customers that you need even more of the product they go through the bottles faster than they would by using proper doses. Of course if your customers are getting sick from poisoning themselves from the product they are not going to stick with it. So they need to convince their customers that their symptoms are not from the product, but at the same time make sure they are treating their iodine poisoning with salt flushes so they go through those bottles of iodine faster so they can sell more.

    As far as there being instructions on the internet so what? Most people will not take the time to make their own. You can find the instructions for making Silly Putty inline as well but the makers are still making a great living off of selling the stuff because most people will not take the time to make their own.

    What evidence? You mean like the book that supposedly claimed that iodine pushed more bromine out through the urine even though links to the book showed this was never stated? Or the same book that was discussing rat studies using radioactive methyl bromide that you accept as evidence while implying that tests with radioactive iodine do not count? By the way I am still waiting for your answer as to how you expect them to measure the half life of iodine in the body. Or the same book that showed a very rapid elimination of bromide from the body that you ignored even though you posted the evidence?

    How have I demonized iodine? I have CLEARLY stated various times that iodine is essential to the body just like water. But I have also stated that too much of either can be dangerous. Am I wrong? Please answer, was I wrong or not?

    As for the bromine how have I exonerated bromine? Again, I have CLEARLY stated that bromine can be toxic. But as with iodine this would take a significant exposure and build up, which is very rare partially due to its rapid excretion and the higher exposure to other compounds that increase its excretion rate even more.

    Wash.

    Rinse.

    Repeat.

    I may not necessarily agree with his posting style, but the content of what JamesS is saying makes absolute sense. Correct me if I'm wrong (anyone? anyone? Bueller? Bueller?) but isn't he basically saying that there is no "standard" dose that will work for everyone and that we need to use caution when adding supplements...any supplements...and to err on the lower side rather than the higher side. More is not necessarily better. Unless you're talking kettle chips. Then more is definitely better.

    And bromide can't cause break outs - FU JamesS. Sorry, I'm not particularly articulate.

    How do you make iodine? I'm too lazy to Google that right now.
