The Historical Background of the Iodine Project

Guy. E. Abraham M.D.


    The literature search revealed that 60 million mainland Japanese consume a daily average of 13.8 mg of elemental iodine and they are one of the healthiest nations, based on overall wellbeing and cancer statistics (4). Japanese women do not stop consuming iodine-rich foods during pregnancy, and Japanese fetuses are exposed to maternal peripheral levels of iodide at concentrations of 10-5M to 10-6(1-4). Either the Japanese are mutants, capable of striving on toxic levels of iodine or we have been grossly deceived, and the human body needs at least 100 times the RDA, which was established very recently in 1980 and confirmed in 1989!! (7).


The Safe and Effective Implementation of
Orthoiodosupplementation In Medical Practice

Guy. E. Abraham M.D.


     Of all the elements known so far to be essential for health, iodine is the most misunderstood and the most feared. Yet, it is by far the safest of all the trace elements known to be essential for human health. It is the only trace element that can be ingested safely in amounts up to 100,000 times the RDA. For example, potassium iodide has been prescribed safely to pulmonary patients in daily amounts of up to 6.0 gm/day, in large groups of such patients for several years.1-3 It is important, however, to emphasize that this safety record only applies to inorganic, non-radioiodides. Unfortunately, the severe side effects of iodine-containing drugs have been attributed to inorganic iodine/iodide, even though published studies clearly demonstrate that it is the whole organic molecule that is cytotoxic, not the iodine covalently bound to this molecule.




Goitre isn’t the only side effect of not having enough iodine in the diet.
People with long-term iodine deficiency can develop hypothyroidism. 
This is a condition in which not enough thyroid hormone is produced. 
Symptoms include dry skin, hair loss, fatigue and slowed reflexes.

1.)  It has been known since the 1930s that the thyroid hormones control tooth eruption.

2.)  In China, entire villages are being relocated due to fluoride contamination.

3.)  Fluoridation delays the eruption of teeth because of its hypothyroid effect.

4.)  Dental fluorosis is a sign of thyroid dysfunction.

5.)  Any anti-thyroid substance administered during the time of enamel formation will produce the effects seen in dental fluorosis.

6.)  Fluorides are acknowledged as the cause of thyroid cancer,
Kaschin-Beck disease and iodine deficiency.
