  • Perichlorate is natrually occouring and is found in soil. If you drink cows milk... then its in there as well. Its in tap water also. Its like many things we ingest... natrually occuring, and generally harmless in trace amounts. There have been tests that show that it is also in human breast milk... and while in very tiny amounts, it is still there. Perhaps that is why we have so many products containing Iodine, even formula.. Iodine is thought to counteract the effects of perichorate.

  • All i say is, just relax. You know you can't run away from it and be totally natural in any place in this universe.

    Formula is no good, then feed breastmilk. Breastmilk is no good, now what?
    the same thing here. Vaccine is no good, then infected with polio. Now what is worse?
