I just read and enjoyed The Perfect Health Diet. I just saw on the blog that Paul says to avoid niacin, which I have been taking for my iodine protocol. I returned the book to the library and can't look up why he says there is no need for niacin, or perhaps reasons against supplementing it? Does anyone (perhaps Paul himself) have an answer for me on that? Thanks

There may be reasons why some people would benefit from using Niacin.
" Niacin is currently the most potent available agent to increase high-density lipoprotein and reduce lipoprotein(a), both independent risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Niacin also has been found to reduce inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein (CRP) and lipoprotein-associated phospholipase-A2 (Lp-PLA2) and to decrease small-dense LDL and increase large-particle LDL, all potentially anti-atherosclerotic properties.
