Iodine, has to have all the right vitamins and minerals in place to work its, magic on the body.
Boron is another supplement I will add to my arsonal against the many poisons we ingest.
Even cockroach poison helped these Australians, who got their Boron fix from it.
Calcium, Magnesium, and Boron
Their Combined Roles in Maintaining Bone Strength
In an article published in the Journal of Applied Nutrition,(5) Newnham brings to our attention the following interesting observations:
1. Thirty years ago it was observed that a patient with osteoarthritis who lived in Australia in an area where the soil was deficient in boron, responded well to 6 mg. of boron a day. Within three weeks he experienced reduction of swelling and stiffness. Once he was free of symptoms for a full year without taking boron, symptoms returned. After returning to taking boron his condition improved once again within ten days.
2. Populations that live in an area where the soil or the drinking water contain high levels of boron are free of Arthritis (boron intake of 910 mg./day). Low boron levels in soil or water correlate with much higher than average incidence of Arthritis (boron intake of less than 2 mg./day).
3. Unpublished information from Australia reveals that thousands of people consumed boron tablets in the form of borax (a cockroach poison containing 10% elemental boron). Surprisingly the use of this product as a nutritional supplement was only promoted by word of mouth.
