Following the last posting regarding Lynne Farrow's presentation, I watched a very interesting youtube presentation/lecture on Iodine Deficiency by Dr David Brownstein. It is some 100 minutes long but I found it of great interest – If you have time please view – could change your life . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeDN-lJl7ho
He is the author of various books on Iodine
–"Why you need it and why you cant live without it"
"Over Coming Thyroid Disorders" – 3rd edition
Dr Brownstein quotes from one of his books - "17 years of practicing medicine, I can say that it is impossible to achieve your optimal health if you do not have adequate iodine levels. I have yet to see any item that is more important to promoting health or optimizing the function of the immune system than iodine. Learn what forms of iodine you need and why there is not enough iodine in salt. See how iodine can help: breast cancer, fibrocystic breast disease, detoxification, fatigue, Graves' disease, and Hashimoto's disease. Find out why iodine deficiency may be the root cause of thyroid problems including hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer. Discover how to get iodine in your diet and improve your immune system."
