Iodine Deficiency: The Forgotten Public Health Crisis
Show Notes

All throughout human history and up until approximately 100 years ago, iodine deficiency, goiters (enlarged thyroid glands), hypothyroidism, and death from thyroid failure was a common public health problem.  Ask your great grandmother (if you could) about goiters and she would likely have been able to share many horror stories about people who were disfigured by goiters and who died of thyroid failure. This public health problem essentially disappeared when, in the U.S., the FDA asked salt manufacturers to add iodine to table salt.

But then, years later, various government agencies advised Americans to cut back on salt--and guess what is now making a comeback? Yes: iodine deficiency, hypothyroidism from iodine deficiency, and even goiters. Don't let this happen to you.

In this episode of Defiant Health Radio, I show you how to make certain that sufficient iodine is part of your life.
