The miraculous trace element iodine can help prevent or even cure breast cancer, says the evidence:

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Vatic Note:  I have so many stories over the past 25 years that I have been using natural remedies,  that I am sure I have told most of them on this blog.  LOL  However, let me simply say that we are in charge of our own bodies and feeding it right with “real food” IS ONE CRITICAL element for a non cancer condition, along with a modicum of exercise, and a whole lot of positive attitudes toward your life.  It has worked for me a hundred fold.

Even if someone slams you, you can smile and say how much you love them and for them to have a happy day, and then walk away.  Be grateful they showed you where they were at right now and that gave you the opportunity to avoid them till they are finished with their journey, but laughing, having fun, being around positive people who are not in denial…. big difference….. can be a healing baum for everyone including yourself.

The miraculous trace element iodine can help prevent or even cure breast cancer, says the evidence:


(NaturalNews) If you or a woman close to you were advised to have a double mastectomy performed in order to prevent breast cancer, shouldn’t anotheroption be available? Medical mutilations have been performed lately on women told they are genetically predisposed to getting breast cancer.

That other option could be a good diet with supplemental iodine. Exactly why iodine offers the other option for preventing breast cancer regardless of genetics is referenced later in this article.

Dr. David Brownstein could be called Dr. Iodine for all he’s done to inform others of the importance of iodine through interviews and his book Iodine: Why You Need It; Why You Can’t Live Without It.

Dr. Mark Sircus, who occasionally contributes articles to Natural News, constantly promotes bicarbonate of soda, magnesium, and iodine as more important and effective for health than most realize.

Now, Dr. Jeffrey Dach has grabbed the iodine talking stick, producing several international clinical, lab, and case study reports that demonstrate the efficacy of iodine ingestion for breast cancer.
Dr. Dach on iodineSalt used to be iodized with elemental iodine to prevent goiter, but no more. So what little protection that offered has vanished. Dr. Dach notes that iodized salt is not sufficient for supplementing iodine.

Iodine’s RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) is 150 mcg (micrograms) per day. Dr. Guy Abraham, who initially mentored Dr. Brownstien, insists we should be taking in 12.5 mg (milligrams) of elemental iodine daily. This is 100 times greater than our RDA.
It’s also the estimated iodine per individual intake from seaweed and seafood among Japan’s population. Japan has the lowest rates of thyroid, prostate, and breast cancer(VN:  even after having two nuclear bombs dropped right in their midst. Iodine is what save so many of their population after WW II.) Some might argue that the Japanese get their iodine from food, but iodine supplements are unsafe. (VN: That is how I get my iodine is through seasonings made of seaweed and eating sushi and taking an iodine tincture from a health place, in water every day and I am a retiree and had a breast lump at one time, but got rid of it without traditional medicine, and today because I take the iodine I do not get anymore lumps, thank you who ever discovered it. I suggest trying the one at the site link below the title. He always tests these things out before allowing the ad on his site, so I trust it) 

Well, the FDA recommends 165 mg of iodine to prevent thyroid cancer in the event of a radiation emergency, and iodine has been used medicinally with even higher doses in the past.

Speaking of thyroid cancer, there has been an upsurge of thyroid nodules, leading to complete removal of thyroid glands to determine whether the nodules are cancerous.

Some biopsy! Even if no cancer is detected, the person is sentenced to a lifetime of synthetic prescription thyroid hormones. Iodine can prevent that unhealthy scenario.  (VN:  Why Ranger Adams, didn’t you know? that is the basis of our new economy.  Making sure Americans have to take legal drugs all the time for anything minor or major.  That is why they tried to take our natural remedies away from us and giving control to the drug companies, that didn’t last long, the roar of dissent was huge. But after they transferred our manufacturing to  slave labor countries, we had no industries except illness, war, prisons, etc.  anything that harms Americans is now the new industries for growth in America which means illness, crime, war all have to grow for profits to grow.)

In addition to preventing some cancers, there are several studies and actual case histories demonstrating iodine’s ability to cure breast cancer.
Lab studies and breast cancer case historiesHere’s that option for stemming genetically predisposed breast cancer. Iodine has been determined to actually alter breast cancer associated gene expressions. It turns off cancer promoting genes and turns on genes that promote cancer cell apoptosis or cellular destruction. (

Another study proves that large iodine intake does not adversely affect thyroid hormone production or quality. The researchers did this to allay concerns in the medical profession about potential downsides for using iodine against breast cancer. Downsides don’t prevent using chemo and radiation though.

Dr. Dach lists many international in vivo studies using rats, epidemiological human surveys, and in vitro (petri dish) lab studies demonstrating the efficacy and safety of ingesting elemental iodine for cancerous tumors. All of these studies, with a few actual case histories, are available in Dr. Jeffrey Dach’s articles sourced below.

Dr. Guy Abraham developed a product called Idoral. And Dr. Edward Group, DC, ND, lists four types of iodine supplements that vary in bio-availability: Nascent iodine, Lugol’s solution, potassium iodide, and transformative nano-colloidal detoxified iodine.

The cancer industry’s willful denial of iodine for breast cancer is not because it’s ineffective and dangerous. It’s because supplemental iodine can’t be patented.
