Health and Human Development - Iodine

Iodine

Required for the formation of the thyroid hormones that regulate metabolic
rate in the body and therefore the control of energy use. The hormones are
produced in the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormone deficiency leads to
retardation of growth. A deficiency during pregnancy and early infancy
results in retardation of brain development.

Salt water fish, vegetables and produce grown in areas where iodine is
present in soils. In low iodine areas, iodine is added to one of the staple
foods. In Australia, salt is iodised, though it appears fewer people are
using iodised salt. Read the following article where experts warn of iodine
deficiency.
