Also, the table salt iodine evaporates very quickly. In most cases you are getting no iodine at all for your "iodized" salt.
Excellent information...thank you very much. Just for everyone's information I feel it's only fair to share some personal information regarding Iodine usage. Iodine assists the petutiary gland to function properly. When my sister and I were young, back in the late 50's early 60's, we were both late beginning our periods. The doctors back then were much BOLDER than they are today, and 'natural' methods were used more than medications.
Our doctor at that time was the average, come to the home (house calls were the thing) doctor. This is what he told my mother to do, and my sister and I had to take this. Since we were both iodine deficient, he had my mom give us a 'whiskey shot glass' of grape juice, with only 1-2 drops of regular, over the counter Iodine. YES, that plain...old fashioned, skull and bones picture on the front of the bottle, Iodine. Within 3 weeks of having that every other day, we both began our periods finally on schedule. Once we started, we were taken off of it
and let nature takes it course. We were always on time, like clockwork...and very, very fertile.
So, IF people would like, to maybe offset what is in the water that removes what we need, I MAY suggest 1 drop of iodine per gallon of water, let set out open long enough to let the chlorine dissipate. However, with the fluoride in it...it may not be a good idea.
There is a site where people can purchase a WHOLE food in a liquid, but this stuff is PRIMO. It's called Frequent Sea, is rather expensive but is totally free of additives, preservatives and so forth. http://www.everydayhealthy.com/
(order site) and http://www.everydayhealthy.com/1.html
this one is the history and how this drink is put together. You will NOT BELIEVE how wonderfully it is done, and how very pure. But when you find out the process, which they show in the video, you'll understand 'why' it's expensive.
Hope this helped a bit.
Good water can take the Iodine quite well, and in the correct quantity, like the 1 drop per gallon would give you the same amount per glass as a helping of fish. I'm a former CMA, so I know it won't hurt you, unless you're allergic to iodine.
