Radiation Poisoning Treated by Iodine?
Is iodine good to take against radiation in the daily atmosphere?
Dr. Brownstein, renowned expert in treatment of iodine deficiency addressed this problem recently in his Blog.
Individuals who are iodine deficient, will take up radioactive iodine in larger amounts compared to someone who is iodine sufficient.
Dr. Brownstein, in his clinical experience, has found that a dose safe for the majority of people is Iodoral (Optimox) or Iodozyme HP (Biotics) tablets which contain 12.5mg of iodine. He suggest the iodine intake be slowly built up to 50 mg. for those individuals who has been diagnosed with iodine deficiency.
Two drops of Lugol’s solution equals 12.5mg of iodine will result in a 95% decrease in radioactive iodine uptake by the thyroid gland.
I hope this answered your question.
