Here are my Dr. Bob “Approved” takeaways:

If I may, I would like to make a comment about your advocating the taking of iodine. I have hypothyroidism and am taking levothyroxine daily. I have researched the taking of iodine as an alternative to medication for hypothyroidism and have found many sufferers of the disease who report that taking iodine made their problems worse by causing their thyroxine levels to fluctuate throughout the day. These fluctuations cause a myriad of symptoms including hot flashes, heart palpitations and confusion of thought processes, which manifestations can be quite severe. I would therefore hesitate to advocate the taking of iodine for any person who has thyroid problems, especially if they are also taking prescription drugs for their condition.
