There is a lot of information available on iodine. Bread bakers used to use a form of iodine as a dough conditioner before they started using the toxic bromates instead. Some are switching back.
Much is said about many cancers being related to an iodine deficiency.
Kelp and other seaweeds are good sources of iodine. Black walnut (nuts, hulls and leaves) are an iodine accumulator, which may be the reason they work so well as a parasite cleanse.
Cold and flu? Absolutely. It seems most pathogens can't survive in an iodine environment. It is strongly anti-bacterial.

Great thread! I will have to do some research. This iodine that you take orally - do you buy it at the drug store?

So .... digging .... I found the letter: "I take eight drops of Lugol's Iodine Solution in a glass of water, to cure colds and flu." Apparently this isn't just any iodine, but "a mixture of Iodine and Potassium Iodide" .... hmmm ... the author now mentions that it comes from a book called the cure for all diseases.
Interesting stuff. I'm just passing on what I read because I thought it was interesting. I'm a bit skeptical.
