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. It is important… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Iodine, ingesting or not?
TLDR
Although there is strong evidence showed that iodine prevents and fight various diseases some doctors and gynecologists still not prescribe iodine in pregnancy and lactation by fear, ignorance or lack of knowledge, one change of paradigm in the current medical model in relation in to iodine intake needs to be urgently done.
Autoimmune Thyroiditis and Iodine Therapy
TLDR
Iodine therapy is indicated in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis to preserve normal function of the thyroid, unless the patient has goiter, and patients receiving iodine therapy must be monitored closely to ensure the condition does not exacerbate.
Iodine deficiency and thyroid nodular pathology - epidemiological and cancer characteristics in different populations: Portugal and South Africa
TLDR
Public information regarding the negative consequences of ID combined with the availability of affordable iodized salt are likely to achieve the goal of the elimination of ID.

Orthoiodosupplementation: Iodine sufficiency of the whole human body
TLDR
This essential element has suffered from total neglect regarding the amount of it required by the human body for optimal health and is the most deficient trace element in the world.
Preliminary experience in the treatment of hyperthyroidism with potassium perchlorate.
TLDR
At the present time propylthiouracil, methylthaviouracil and l-methyl-2-mercaptoimidazole (methimazole) are widely employed in the preparation of thyrotoxic patients for surgery, and to a lesser extent in the chronic control of the overactive thyroid gland.
Effect of iodinated water supplies on thyroid function.
TLDR
Iodine, long recognized as an effective agent for providing potable water, was used as the means of disinfecting the water supply of an entire prison community and only 2 of 15 inmates tested had impaired “organification” of thyroidal iodide.
Treatment of Thyrotoxicosis with 131I
TLDR
The present report describes the results obtained in 500 thyrotoxic patients treated with 131 in Sheffield, an expansion of the two previous reports from this centre, in which the results in 20 and 140 patients were recorded.
Prognosis of hyperthyroidism treated by antithyroid drugs.
TLDR
The optimal therapeutic schedules and the expected sequence of events during treatment have been determined, but there remains considerable divergence of opinion on the incidence of prolonged remission after cessation of a course of therapy with an antithyroid compound.

THE RANGE OF EFFECTIVE IODINE DOSAGE IN EXOPHTHALMIC GOITER: I. THE EFFECT ON BASAL METABOLISM OF REST AND OF THE DAILY ADMINISTRATION OF ONE DROP OF COMPOUND SOLUTION OF IODINE
The normal daily requirement of the body for iodine has never been determined. Indirect evidence on the question is offered by analyses for iodine of soil, water, air and various foodstuffs as they
Optimum Levels of Iodine for Greatest Mental and Physical Health
TLDR
The recommended levels for daily I intake were chosen with the goal of preventing and correcting endemic goiter and hypothyroidism, assuming that the only role of I in health maintenance is in its essentiality for the synthesis of T4 and T3.
Has the use of antithyroid drugs for Graves' disease become obsolete?

TLDR
Whether or not the use of antithyroid drugs indeed may have become obsolete is examined, and the author thinks not, and is optimistic that imminent discovery of the yet elusive and enigmatic pathogenesis of Graves' disease will permit new and innovative treatment or more effective use of currently available therapies.
ABSORPTION OF COMPOUND SOLUTION OF IODINE FROM THE GASTRO-INTESTINAL TRACT: WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE ABSORPTION OF FREE IODINE
TLDR
Although iodine had been used with beneficial results in isolated cases of exophthalmic goiter prior to 1923, the widespread use of compound solution of iodine, U.S.P., since then has been used by nearly every clinician for treatment and in the preoperative and postoperative care of patients with this disease.
