Are We In an Iodine Crisis? with Lynne Farrow | Ep. 050
by Sascha Kalivoda
I can’t believe how long it took me to do a deep dive into iodine. I’ve been using it for a long time and recommending it for everything from weight loss to cysts, brain health to tumours. However, little did I know how much iodine we actually need and the forms of it that we need to make our whole body happy.
Lynne Farrow’s book cleared all that up for me and I am so pleased to share this interview to you so you can hear from the author herself.
Lynne was plagued by all sorts of iodine deficiency symptoms and challenges for many, many years. She had to quit her job as a professor, she lost her driver’s license, she was extremely tired, had cystic breasts and ultimately ended up with breast cancer.
Once finally discovering the need for iodine and the truth about this essential element, the path of her life changed forever. She now educates us on the need for iodine through various avenues, one being her excellent book The Iodine Crisis, What You Don’t Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life.
I highly recommend your read that book and start educating yourself on the truth of this essential mineral. And after listening to this interview, I know you will!
If one wanted to make a population sick, fat and dumb, removing iodine, flooding the environment with toxic halides and making people scared of biologically appropriate doses of iodine just may be on the agenda.
