'There is a lot of mystery and confusion surrounding iodine’s importance and safety as a supplement, which is unfortunate since there’s so little of it in our foods. And Iodized salt is not a good way to get iodine into your system.
So dispelling the misinformation and disinformation is necessary.
Iodine’s RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) is 150 mcg (micrograms) per day. Dr. Guy Abraham, who initially mentored Dr. David Brownstien, author of The Iodine Crisis and Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It, insists we should be taking in 12.5 mg (milligrams) daily. This is 100 times greater than our RDA.
But it is also the estimated amount per individual intake from seaweed and seafood among Japan’s population. Japan has the lowest rates of thyroid, prostate, and breast cancer. Some might argue that the Japanese get their iodine from food, but that supplements are unsafe.'
