I've long thought most commenters here were iodine deficient.

Why should he vex his readers? Who needs trade offs? The till is always overflowing.

Potable water.
Iodized salt.
Use of DDT in malarial areas.

Just.Not.Sexy.Or.Expensive.Enough. For . The International. Set.

Could a lack of iodized salt be the cause for so many new democratic party members?

Davod

I wonder if the natural salt craze is creating a pool of iodine deficient first worlders?

Ralph L

If they get smarter, they'll develop their economies and increase global warming. Oh no!

Strawman Cometh

Did anyone else click over looking for the "side effect"?
Dear Nick Wordsmith, You keep using that word phrase. I do not think it means what you think it means.

In my not so humble opinion, the jokes about iodine deficiency are closer to the truth than people may realize. We stopped adding iodine to bread in the early 1980s -- exactly when obesity took off & SAT scores started trending down.
I believe that w/in the next few years, alarm about iodine deficiency will eclipse concerns about Vitamin D levels and emerge as one of the primary public health issues in the US.

New Zealand has already started taking steps to address it.

Lets hope we get with the program and do the same.

Is there any data about the relative viability of societies from Iodine sufficient soil compared with areas that are deficient?
