Over 75% of Americans are deficient in iodine.

The consumption of iodine has decreased 50% in the last 30 years. Various additives in food, tap water, medicines and consumer products actually push iodine nutrition out of the body creating an even greater deficiency.

There are dozens of iodine deficiency symptoms. This includes high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, recurring infections, weight gain, fatigue, asthma, ADHD, and constipation.

The pharmaceutical industry is dependent on you being deficient in iodine.

There are 181 possible symptoms of iodine deficiency. Before you let anyone prescribe a pharmaceutical drug to “fix” any of these you need to make sure a simple nutrient is really not what’s missing.

iodine_lugolIodine was put into supplement form in 1829 by a Frenchman named, Dr. Lugol. This formula still exists today and is known as Lugol’s solution. It is considered to be the first “Western medicine” ever. It was used to shrink enlarged thyroids (goiters), cure hyperactive and underactive thyroids, and shrink tumors (cancer) of the thyroid, breast, and prostate. By 1956, there were 1,700 different iodine preparations. It was used as a panacea since it fixes almost everything!

The drug companies started to attack it in the 1960s. Now you can’t even get it at a pharmacy! Also, medical schools started teaching their students that iodine is harmful but this is simply not true.

Why has this deception continued? What causes iodine deficiency? It’s because drug companies make money on this falsehood. It’s not just a little bit of money- it’s a cornerstone of their total income!
