Lately there has been some discussion on social media surrounding the safety of seaweed in the plant kingdom.
This is of importance for those seeking a stable source of iodine as discussed in these recent posts: Iodine 101: Are you Getting Enough? and Iodine Deficiency Case Study & Protocol .
The two main concerns with seaweed, that I’m aware of, include:
1) excessive amounts of iodine from seaweed
2) pollutants and toxins from vegetables of the sea
