I say people are starving to death eating fast foods, burgers, fries, soft drinks & Pizza. They are suffering terribly from micro nutrient deficiency, too much sugar, too many carbs and Wheat Bellies.
Clearly very few in the USA is interested in eating SEAWEED, SEAFOODS and other Iodine
rich foods. So yes, there is no question that Dr. Brownstein is correct. Iodine
was removed from our bread and replaced with Bromide in the 1980's. Iodized salt is no longer prominent in grocery shelves, and people are encouraged to minimize salt in their diets. The FDA is not promoting iodine, and neither are the drug companies. If anything, Iodine
is now labeled as DANGEROUS and a POISON to discourage people from taking it. I blame the Drug Companies for these lies & deception.
We are very lucky to have Dr. Brownstein's limited statistics, because NO ONE is going to finance a Nationwide Survey to sell a $10 bottle of iodine.
