What if I am allergic to iodine?

What if I am allergic to iodine?

Every cell in the body contains iodine and we couldn't live without it, yet many people think they can be allergic to the iodine supplements.

Lynne Farrow, author of the best-selling book "The Iodine Crisis" explains how an allergy related to iodine may not be an iodine allergy:

1. If you are allergic to shellfish it's a specific known protein, not iodine.


2. If you have ever had a reaction to intravenous iodinated dye in a radiation setting, again it's the dye, not the iodine.


3. A small percentage of people are alergic to Povidone/Betadine iodine used in surgical settings. Studies show this is an allergy to the vinyl in that formulation used to keep the iodine on the skin surface.
