Another Reason Not To Read The New York Times, Dopey Writers Claiming We Are Iodine Sufficient In The United States
In July, the New York Times was printing articles claiming that people living in the United States were receiving sufficient amounts of iodine in their diets, even if they did not use iodized salt. This is an example of more false news, lazy or stupid research, or worse on the part of New York Times writers.
Just to clarify things, the vast majority of the people living in the United States are IODINE DEFICIENT. Even if you consumed extreme amounts of iodized salt, you would still be deficient. The US recommended daily allowances are so low they are criminal. Due to the world being about 16 times over capacity, we have used up most of the nutrients from the soil on our farms, and destroyed the vitality of our food in the process. Estimations are that iodine levels have fallen over 50% over the last 4 decades. So nutrient levels are getting steadily worse as we try to keep up with our food supply demands.
Unless you live near the sea and love eating seaweed, you will be iodine deficient. There is far too minimal amounts of iodine in our regular food sources. Supplementation of IODINE and IODIDE with products such as IODORAL or LUGOL'S SOLUTION is essential. Also, never use commercial table salt. It is bad for your health. Instead, use natural sea salt, Himalayan and Celtic types being the best. They are excellent for your health.
When you add the competitor toxic halides, Fluorine and Bromine, into the situation, the lack of iodine (also a halide) in your body is exponentially worsened. Fluorides and Bromides have absolutely no place in our bodies. They are poisons, pure and simple. They block receptor sites for iodine, so the minimal amount of iodine which you do ingest does no good. You have to flood your system with iodine and iodide (different body parts use either/or) to try to detoxify yourself and save your health.
IF YOU ONLY TAKE ONE SUPPLEMENT, IT SHOULD BE IODINE!!!!!! That is how vital iodine is to your health. It is one of the most essential elements to your health and longevity. The writers at the New York Times say only "some pregnant women are at risk of low iodine levels". I wonder who put them up to their nonsense. You get better information out of a tabloid.
Here are some of the things that happen when people do not "wise-up" and continue to believe the false statements coming from the government and our usual news media: an epidemic of breast cancer (oh yes, already happened), and cancers of the prostate, ovaries, uterus, thyroid, and pancreas (these all need sufficient iodine to function properly), cystic breasts, decreased mental function and diseases of the brain, hypothyroidism (rampant), autoimmune problems, increased child and infant mortality, chronic fatigue, infertility, atherosclerosis, fibromyalgia, and possibly multiple sclerosis and other myelin sheath nervous system disorders to name a few major problems also on the rise.
If you can see things as I do, it definitely appears that there is a lot of money to be made by keeping the population deficient in iodine.
Bottom line: we are deficient in iodine, the levels available in food are decreasing, and the need for iodine is increasing due to poisoning with fluorides and bromides.
