In the article, they refer to Lugol’s solution, but I’m pretty sure that they used Iodoral, a tablet form of Lugol’s:
In his book, Iodine: Why you need it, why you can’t live without it, David Brownstein M.D. reports three cases of spontaneous regression of breast cancer after iodine supplementation.
The first patient, Joan a 63-year-old English teacher, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1989, declined conventional treatment, and took 50 mg per day of Lugol’s Solution, (Iodine). Six weeks later, a PET scan (left image) showed, “all of the existing tumors were disintegrating.”
The article then goes on to modern research and recommends iodine therapy with all patients with breast cancer.
