Iodine has great healing benefits for the human body.
Iodine is found in fish and seaweeds from the ocean.
A couple of centuries ago the poorest of the poor people in England, Scotland and Ireland who lived near the sea relied on fish from the ocean for much of their food. People who were at starvation point ate seaweed that was washed up on the shore. Somehow these people survived on this food, with its nutrition from the sea.
"during Ireland's disastrous potato famine of 1847-48, seaweed was used commonly as food, which led to negative associations of seaweed with poverty and famine. "
The lack of Iodine is vast in our Western society. There are processes in the body that make use of certain elements. Once, iodine was the main element. These days it has been replaced by bromine, chlorine and fluoride. This means that we now have far less iodine in our body.
Iodine is essential for thethyroid gland.
The thyroid gland is in charge of the metabolism.
'Metabolism describes the chemical reactions that occur in the body which are vital for keeping us alive.'
Iodine is also needed for the health of the breasts, ovaries and testicles.
Iodine is to be respected as it can affect the body greatly whether there is too much of it or too little.
People in Japan eat lots of fish and seaweed. They have much less cancer of the breast than women in the US. They also live to great ages in good health.
