yes, that is more than possible, its probable. thats why i suggest NOT taking elemental when first taking Iodine and breastfeeding. some of that cant be helped, even without iodine. the milk is the indicator to the developing infant as to the environment it is in. it contains all of the toxins in the mother, those stored and those currently ingested. that in turn tells the genes how to best express themselves. that is why we always do better health-wise when we live in the environment we grew up in. even better, that both mother and child grew up in. thats why i thrive in southwest missouri/northwest arkansas/southeast kansas/northeast oklahoma, also known as the fourstate area.
