[pct-l] water

Someone posted a message several months ago regarding the use of iodine 
instead of a water filter and then using green tea to neutralize(?) the 

I have two questions:

1.  What exactly is the  health concern is related to excess iodine over 
a long period?

2.  Does green tea prevent any iodine buildup in the body or just reduce 
it.  That is, does it make the longterm use of iodine safer or completely 
safe by making the iodine completely inert?

I am thinking  that a "can" stove and no water filter would be a great 
way to save two pounds and filtering water was a pain.

Any response appreciated.
