Re: Sea Kelp - Good idea? Bad idea?
I read that the iodine in kelp can put stress on an unstable thyroid. On the other hand it's a good supplement if you are iodine deficient. Basically too much or too little can be bad for the thyroid. But iodine deficienies are rare in western civilization probably because of our large iodized salt intake. Do a search on oxidative stress, iodine excess and thyroid. And then do another search on unstable thyroid and iodine.
After reading this, I personally would only take the 100% if I was deficient. But, then again I'm from the USA. King of salty food.
