I heard Miso soup is supposed to be great for Potassium Iodide. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks what about the kelp? I am uncertain about pursuing iodide now!
On average, 20 grams of kelp contain 415 mcg of iodine. For adults 18-40 (or adolescents reaching a weight of ~70 kg), 50-60 grams of kelp/day should act as a reasonable prophylactic protocol. Children need approximately half that amount. In adults over 40, I’ve read that prophylactic protocols do not recommend the standard adult dosage until thyroid radiation exposure reaches 500 cGy or greater. This is because the risk of cancer and hypothyroidism decreases as adults age. Since I intend to live to be at minimum 120 years old, I have every intention of ignoring this advice and taking the regular adult protocol.

What the heck is "synthetic" iodine? Iodine is an element like gold, silver, hydrogen or sulfur. The only way to "synthesize" an element is to use a Superconducting Super Collider particle accelerator (very inefficient - only a few atoms are created at a time) or to be a successful alchemist (which historically do not exist).
Iodine is iodine, no matter how it is acquired or how it is used.
