"That was my point in posting iodine number which he assumes I know nothing about."
If you in fact had had such a point, you would not need to explain it at this juncture.
"As you know, herbs elicit responses from the body and allow the body to metabolize and turn compositions into needed nutrients."
If the person you are writing to already knows this, then why are you wasting time telling them it ? It adds nothing.
"All oils have traces of elemental iodine."
I have a bottle of distilled coconut oil, which contains absolutely no trace of iodine. You're wrong again.
You've called me an "arrogant antagonizer" and a "liar". Name calling is a tactic typically what people whose arguments have no merit must resort to when they are desperate.
"But more importantly, what is the body's need for iodine after supplementing with natural forms?"
The statement is indefinite. It states "...more importantly..", but does not make reference to what it's more important relative to.
The more you write, in response to a truthful assertion by V, attempting to inject emotion, the worse your position becomes.
I think statements such as these can give alternate medical community a bad reputation in the eyes of some. There is no such thing as "iodine potential". It's the presence of unsaturation, which can also react with oxygen, bromine, cyanogen and hundreds of other things. It could as easily be called "oxygen potential" or "bromine potential", but nobody uses such terms, other than you, because it does not make sense to do so.
