So fo years now theyv'e put bromine in our food which can be toxic. It's in fish pellets, fertilzers, myriad foods even peanut butter. I think its banned in Europe but in America its found in soft drinks and lots of varied foods.
You can only ask why was this allowed to happen?
Natural iodine is fine in my book, depending on what product we're talking about it being in, and as long as it is in trace amounts (I'm sure it's much better than the chemicals they use now!).
I'd rather have unpasteurized, free-range, organic, hormone-free, grass-fed milk made safer via trace amounts of natural iodine, as opposed to factory-farmed/monsanto artificial-chemical "milk".
Also, I doubt that very many vegans are aware that their gripes related to health-issues and the consumption of milk stem from the fact that most milk nowadays is not unpasteurized, free-range, organic, hormone-free, and grass-fed.
In other words milk can be good for you, whether vegans like it or not (and I do by the way respect the vegan lifestyle, even though I don't always agree with it).
Bromine is in coffee and fluoride is in tea. I think if you drink any of these regularly (like I do), Iodine supplementation is a good idea. If I recall correctly, they occupy the same space, so iodine will take the place of these toxins and help flush them out while giving your cells the iodine they need.
At the moment, I'm taking 4 drops of kelp-derived liquid iodine per day. If I develop thyroid problems, I will surely let you know.

Dr Mark Sircus: http://drsircus.com/ .... he has a lot to say about iodine and magnesium

I rather think that the medical profession sees iodine as a vital micronutrient. Unless things have changed a lot since I was in med school.
I went to his/her second link for Dr. Sircus and searched Iodine there and found this article:
Most likely what Lind is talking about.
