Was reading about skin conditions and came across this article.  Anyone know anything about this?  More reason to follow your BTD or Swami!  


Cherry Angiomas are caused by BROMINE poisoning.

Bromine is found in:

-Soft drinks (including Mountain Dew, Gatorade, Sun Drop, Squirt, Fresca and other citrus-flavored sodas), in the form of brominated vegetable oils (BVOs)

-Bakery goods and some flours often contain a “dough conditioner” called potassium bromate

-Pesticides (specifically methyl bromide, used mainly on strawberries, predominantly in California)

-Medications such as Atrovent Inhaler, Atrovent Nasal Spray, Pro-Banthine (for ulcers), and anaesthesia agents

-Bromine-based hot tub and swimming pool treatments

-Fire retardants (common one is polybromo diphenyl ethers or PBDEs) used in fabrics, carpets, upholstery, and mattresses

-Plastics, like those used to make computers

When you ingest or absorb bromine, it displaces iodine, and this iodine deficiency leads to an increased risk for cancer of the breast, thyroid gland, ovary and prostate — cancers that we see at alarmingly high rates today. This phenomenon is significant enough to have been given its own name — the Bromide Dominance Theory.

Aside from its effects on your endocrine glands, bromine is toxic in and of itself. Bromide builds up in your central nervous system and results in many problems. It is a central nervous system depressant and can trigger a number of psychological symptoms such as acute paranoia and other psychotic symptoms.

Is it excess bromine or the lack of iodine that causes the cherry angiomas?

Chlorine displaces both Bromine and Iodine.

Fluorine displaces all three of the above...

This is one reason I don't like the fluoridation of water...

Got ya! Given this situation it would be virtually impossible to determine any one Halogen as the specific cause of anything. At best a good argument for sticking with natural foods and staying away from the processed.

Especially true for anyone on a low-salt regimen as you certainly would not want any mess up with Iodine supply going on.

Thanks for posting!! Interesting, as they regularly offgas bromide (a chemical compound containing a bromide ion - which is a bromine atom with an ionic charge of −1) on the waterfront here in Wellington and often people say that their skin or their kids' skin is worse at certain times?!
The winds are very strong here too and toxins from that and even crop spraying, and also pollen, gets blown miles!!!
