I had promised to post some funny stuff in the insert for my iodine pills and kept forgetting. It talks a lot about studies done and the FIRST thing mentioned is that "Several studies have demonstrated a relationship between low iodine intake and fibrocystic disease of the breast both in women and laboratory animals." That's been a big problem for me. Then it talks about the amount needed.
"The RDA for iodine was based on the amount of iodine/iodide needed to prevent goiter, extreme stupidity and hypothyroidism." So if someone tells you that you might have an iodine deficiency, it is NOT a compliment! LOL At least I have an excuse, right? ;-) My new slam is "Dude, you are SO iodine deficient!"
