Here are some facts: 1. I have applied topical iodine to the areolas at least daily for over a month now 2. I have experienced a lot of muscle growth in the chest area recently. 3. My pinch testable gyno has appreciably reduced in size during this time, at every time of day, and I notice a difference with the “shirt shadow” test as well. 4. I am not a doctor. 5. I have only experienced points 1 and 3 recently and at the same time. Take this information as you will. Iodine is cheap. I’ve definitely seen enough of a difference to credit it with it. There is now no detectable “fat shadow” in the wrong place when shirtless.
