(just an afterthought - we use iodine drops to prevent fluoride and chlorides from taking up the receptor space... so that fluoride and chlorides that are added to water and such simply flush through, since they compete for the same receptors in the body. A receptor that is taken up by fluoride or chlorides can't hold on to iodine - and vice versa. The levels of fluoride and chlorides added to water can prevent regular iodine (from regular use of iodized table salts and kelp/fish) absorption and cause all sorts of thyroid-related issues, varying from fatigue, muscle pain, irritability, lowered immune system, to full-on hypothyroid issues. One drop of iodine per day can accomplish this. We put one drop per day in Bodhi's water bowl, and each of us take one drop per day in a glass of water.)
