Iodine deficiency is occurring in epidemic proportions. Iodine is the most misunderstood nutrient. In the last 40 years iodine levels have dropped by 50%. Up until the 1960’s Iodine was the most used medicine in the doctor’s bag. Intake of iodine dates back 15,000 years to the use of seaweed. Iodine is needed for every cell to function properly. Not only is iodine critical for proper functioning of the thyroid gland but the breasts, ovaries, and prostrate store iodine. You need iodine for the salivary glands, intestines, stomach, bones, connective tissue and all fluids in the body. Remember every cell needs iodine. Without proper levels of iodine the breasts may become fibrocystic, they can then become cancerous. Many doctors practicing holistic medicine recommend iodine therapy as an alternative to chemo for breast cancer and many other cancers. Iodine is critical for pregnant women and the developing fetus, as Iodine is critical for brain development and ensuring a higher IQ in children, preventing still births and miscarriages, for proper growth and development of children. Iodine is the most important nutrient in treating any and all cancers.

We have fluoride and chlorine in our drinking water and bromide is in many pharmaceutical drugs, personal care products, furniture and beds that have been protected with a flame retardant, childrens pajamas that have flame retardant, some sport drinks, mountain dew, fabric softeners, tooth paste, mouth wash and many other products. When bromide or fluoride get into the cells it blocks iodine absorption and those cells become compromised. Bromide and fluoride will calcify the pituitary gland, the pituitary gland is the gland that sends a signal to the thyroid to work properly so if your thyroid is not working there is a good chance it starts with your pituitary.

Iodine is anti fungal, anti bacterial, anti viral, anti parasitic, will protect the cells from heavy metals, fluoride, bromide, chlorine and much much more. When taken in high enough doses iodine will chelate the cells of all of the toxins listed above. Iodine is the only substance known that can remove fluoride, bromide and chloride from the cells.

Supplementing with thyroid hormone will exacerbate the iodine deficient problem, and Dr. Brownstein believes prolongeduse of thyroid hormone can lead to thyroid cancer. He believes we must consume 100 times the RDA for Iodine.

Apoptosis is the programmed death of a cell which is part of the normal healthy life cycle of a cell. Without apoptosis, cells will continue to divide until they overwhelm the body. Cancer cells are examples of cells that do not undergo apoptosis. Iodine promotes apoptosis of the cells including cancer cells thus helping our body eliminate cancer and protect our cells from cancer.
