The benefits of iodine in the body are far reaching. Oddly enough, it is the least understood of all the essential trace elements.

This is the safest of all the essential trace elements which can be administered in large amounts when in an inorganic nonradioactive form.

Iodine is stored throughout your entire body – the skin, teeth, nails, all the organs, and bones.

When you have the correct amount of iodine in your body, you are able to:

  • Maintain your energy level all day
  • Maintain your weight
  • Live without aches and pains
  • Maintain a cheerful and uplifted attitude
  • Have a clear memory
  • Able to tolerate cold
  • Have normal bowel movements;
  • Have full and shiny hair; and
  • Obtain restful night at sleep
  • Have normal skin and supple fingernails


An Early Warning Sign

Cherry angiomas are red moles on your skin which contain an abnormal amount of blood vessels.

These can be extremely small and less than 5 millimeters or can grow larger.

They are considered to be painless and harmless. Coloring can be from red to purple, often dome-shaped and may be located on the trunk, limbs, face scalp, neck, but rarely the hands.

These skin lesions are extremely common. Sometimes, they may appear as clusters of dilated capillaries on the surface of the skin or may appear alone.

Here is a photo of some of the red moles I have on my skin.

Most physicians and medical information would have you believe these skin lesions appear in mid to late adulthood.

However, the latest statistics report that ninety percent of women have this condition.

Of that percentage, eighty percent are women under twenty years old.

Unfortunately, this condition is now appearing on babies and young children.

Medical Explanation

Medical researchers declare there is no known causefor this. It’s “just something that happens in old age.”

Some doctors believe this is sun damage to the skin. Some believe it is a genetic malfunction.

They fail to fully address the question of why this skin condition is happening.


Conventional Medical Treatment

The condition of cherry angioma is cosmetically unappealing but not life threatening. Some individuals may chose to undergo painful treatment which would be:

    • Electrosurgery – insertion of an electrical needle which destroys the blood vessels and causes scarring


    • Cryotherapy – freezing with sprayed liquid nitrogen or applied with a cotton swab



  • Laser vaporization – intense beam of light


There is no guarantee any of these are a permanent cure. Sometimes additional treatment is needed.

Still, this does not address the underlying cause.

The Real Cause

Cherry angiomas are caused by bromine poisoning. Research conducted by Drs. A. D. Cohena, E. Cagnanob, and D. A. Vardya, shows the correlation between bromine poisoning and cherry angiomas.

Mysterious red moles appeared on researchers’ bodies after working for extended periods of time with brominated compounds.

Bromine poisoning, stored in the fat tissues, is a halogen. It is a known disruptor which prevents the absorption of iodine in the body.

The body attempts to move the toxin away from vital body organs storing it in fat tissues and in the skin where it resides as “red dots.”

Bromine poisoning symptoms may be any or all of the following:

  • Twitching – eyelid or feet with tingling in hands or feet
  • Emotions may include gloom, depression, overly emotional, anxiety for no reason, irritability
  • Tongue or mouth sores, broken corner of mouth, odd swallowing sensation, or dry mouth
  • Body odor or foul urine smell
  • Brain fog and lethargy
  • Headache, sinus problems
  • Metallic taste in mouth or dry mouth
  • Aching hips or legs
  • Uretheral spasm causing frequent urination not related to an infection, kidney pain
  • Changes in vision
  • Constipation or diarrhea

Some products which contain bromine are:


  • Bromated flour also called “Enriched Flour”
  • Brominated vegetables
  • Asthma inhalers
  • New furniture, carpeting, bedding, cars
  • Fire retardants especially in children’s clothing
