I checked to see what I'm taking right now and its "Natures Plus" brand of potassium iodine.I changed brands last time i ordered so now i have the more beneficial type of iodine supplement potassium iodine....the change was a lucky accident.View Thread
The only reason I take Potassium iodate is for the iodine content so the study does not apply for those who take it strictly as an iodine source.Taking it in small amounts 150mcg ....mcgs and not mgs prortects from harm due to toxic amounts.But since potassium iodine offers additional benefits that potassium iodate does not I might as well change to it....if i can find it in 150mcg capsules.View Thread
I know the ANDI scale is speculation and I have no idea how long it will take before we know who is right about that....but I think Essee recommends lots of leafy greens for heart disease.
You are involved in an experiment now to see which diet is best for heart disease and diabetes since you have both.You changed from the Fuhrman diet to the McDougall low fat diet after coding.It may be that extreme low fat is necessary for those with extensive heart disease,but may not be the best diet overall for those without heart disease.
Dolores,I wouldn't be too hard on Dr Fuhrman.Thr real issue is who is right,and wrong, about what.The only thing I KNOW for sure he is wrong about is potatoes,but then he got caught up in the confusion about glycemic index....but we can excuse that since so many others did also.I suspect he will correct that position in the next several years.
After all he did stick to his position about sodium even when so many studies were coming out saying low sodium was harmful.Now that those studies have been exposed his stance is looking stronger....and the dead giveaway was the healthy African societies that get very low amounts of sodium.
And we still do not know who will turn out to be right about the dangers of too low fat or the idea of nutrient density,and the need for some raw greens every day.View Thread
