I know that they can be a roudy lot, but that is just because they are passionate about what they are trying to achieve, and I for one, understand that. I don't get involved in the debates. I don't feel that I have enough knowledge or experience to debate anyone on iodine. But I do use it. And I am building to quite a high dose IMO.

I am not interested in arguing about it, only learning. Everyone's input is valuable. We are all here to learn.
