I have been reading about the antibiotic, antiseptic and anti viral properties of iodine here
and wondered, does iodine then kill the beneficial bacteria that I have been getting from kefir and sauerkraut? I have been intrigued by all of the anecdotal stories of the benefits of iodine supplementation and wonder if they are outweighed by the effects on beneficial bacteria? Does anyone have any ideas on this please??

andrew, i just ordered some iodine for the purpose of killing c diff, and according to a few sites i've read, it does not kill good bacteria. here is a link to one. i actually plan on doing iodine enemas since i've heard they kill all the bad bugs in your gut.
