How can iodine be so misunderstood? Depending on who is ‘talking’, it has a variety of descriptions; an essential nutrient, naturally occurring element, part of the
oceanic water cycle, food additive, disinfectant, healing agent, poison, a mineral that is mined, a mineral that is extracted from brine, most abundantly stored in the ocean water, rained out on our soil, found in seafood, found in leafy green vegetables, used in food production, that can cause allergic reactions, that is part of the normal life and death cycle of cells and found all over your body, and G.R.A.S (Generally Regarded as Safe) by the FDA as food additive, a controlled substance, part of a World Health Organization Mission to mitigate Iodine Deficiency Disorders that touches 2 billion people world-wide and when dietary intake is too low, (Iodine Deficiency Disorder) it is the leading cause of impaired cognitive development in the world. WHAT?????
