Quote by: Leonardo da VinciThe elements abundant in seaweeds include iodine, magnesium, potassium, sodium, calcium, zinc, copper, chloride, sulfur, phosphorous, vanadium, cobalt, manganese, selenium, bromine, arsenic, iron, and fluorine. Alaria seaweed contains 770% iodine in a 1/3 cup serving. When our bodies have a sufficient amount of iodine, it doesn't take on the radioactive iodine that is present in the environment. It is only when our bodies lack iodine that it takes in radioactive iodine and causes a deficiency or toxicity in our bodies (disease). Most places around the world, including here in Ontario, have nuclear powers stations. It was important for us to consider more seaweeds in our diet, so we made our own soup recipe incorporating some alaria seaweed.
