Video : Whole Body Iodine Sufficiency – Dr Jorge D. Flechas, MD –
A thought provoking somewhat controversial talk by another brave specialist in iodine.

Like Vitamin D, deficiency iodine intake and utilisation issues are global due to, falling levels in food, falling intakes, increased intake of factors that block uptake, thyroid function, or wider related function, compounded by deficiencies and imbalances in the modern diet and other factors such as uptake and function blockers from the environment and food chain.
