Jarvis said Iodine cannot displace bromide???

I got this quotation some place on the web. Apologies for losing the source but the Jarvis enthusiasts out there might be able to address this report. I think someone addressed the atomic weight issue not applying to halogens months ago. Could that person enlighten us? Anyone? Anyone?--CS

The mechanism behind "halogen displacement" was probably best described by J.C. Jarvis, M.D. (Folk Medicine, Henry Holt & Co., 1958, HB, p. 136), who wrote:

"The clinical activity of any one of these four halogens is in inverse proportion to its atomic weight. This means that any one of the four can displace the element with a higher atomic weight, but cannot displace an element with a lower atomic weight. For example, flourine can displace chlorine, bromine and Iodine because flourine has a lower atomic weight than the other three. Similarly, chlorine can displace bromine and Iodine because they both have a higher atomic weight.

Likewise, bromine can displace Iodine from the body because iodine has a higher atomic weight. But a reverse order is not possible. A knowledge of this well-known chemical law brings us to a consideration of the addition of chlorine to our drinking water as a purifying agent. We secure a drinking water that is harmful to the body not because of its harmful germ content but because the chlorine content now causes the body to lose the much-needed iodine..."
