Exactly. Traditional Japanese diet has 13mg Iodine from kelp.

90% of Americans are Iodine deficient, ergo if thyroid is compromised it's likely from iodine deficiency, then the cruciferous vegetables can be a problem.

I think that is what Kevin was getting at.

My wife takes synthyroid. Until her blood test shows normal, it is not unreasonable to avoid cruciferous vegetables and substitute glutathione (asparagus, artichokes and avocado) and selenium to battle cancer.

I like cruciferous vegetable, but I am iodine sufficient, as I took 50mg of iodine (Iodarol) a day for a month. I now get about a mg of iodine a day or so.

Thanks for the head's up, davyC!
