    From reddit
    "But on the positive side, iodine deficiency and its symptoms were vanquished almost overnight. And iodine’s mental benefits may even help explain the Flynn Effect, which observes that IQ rose about 3 points per decade in developed countries throughout the 20th century. It’s been thought that improved health and nutrition were the driving forces of the Flynn Effect. Now, it appears that iodine alone was responsible for roughly one decade of that remarkable climb. All the more reason, then, for the rest of the world to follow suit and relegate iodine deficiency to the history books."

    Sounds like a better job than how Iron was handled

    Why is that? Tbh I forgot that ray was anti iodine.
    In the same article it also said it used 20,000 thyroid related deaths.
    I'm not sure I have a need for iodine myself. I felt I had thyroid inflammation possibly, but it also felt every energizing and androgenic. I was shoveling and pickaxing a huge concrete slab out of the yard and had endless energy

    He's not, he's wary of iodine supplementation over 1mg a day chronically.

    Sounds like a guaranteed excess. I typically how what I consider low estrogen so not much room for iodine here, but I could play with it later

    Yeah honestly. Looking into water purification methods right now, annoying how most filter companies don't seem to mention how their filters work against flouride

    Seems like filters are around $150 minimum, but it's essential
