Publisher's Summary

Iodine is a chemical element with the atomic number 53. The body requires iodine, but it can’t produce it. The iodine required by the body must come into one's diet.

The quantity found in foods is very small. It has been discovered that processed foods typically have more iodine as a result of the addition of iodized salt. Most of the iodine in the world today is found in the ocean. Its high concentration is in seafood, especially seaweed.

However, iodine is an important but very small nutrient needed in the body. Thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) are produced in the presence of iodine. At a minimal quantity, iodine is very important for the proper growth, development, and functioning of all human beings.

The level of iodine in an adult person's body is about 60mg, and in the blood, it ranges from 10-14 micrograms/dl. Iodine is a detoxifier.

What happens when we are deficient in iodine? We have infertility and hormonal issues. Seventy-two percent of the world can be labeled as iodine deficient.

The World Health Organization claims iodine is the world's greatest single cause of preventable mental retardation. Pregnant women are at a high risk of iodine deficiency because they need to consume enough to meet their own daily needs as well as the needs of their growing baby. The growing demand for iodine continues during lactation, as babies get iodine through breast milk.

Meanwhile, lack of iodine consumption during pregnancy and lactation may cause side effects for both the mother and baby.

The mother may experience symptoms of an underactive thyroid, such as goiter, weakness, fatigue, and feeling cold, while iodine deficiency in infants may stunt physical growth and brain development.

A severe iodine deficiency may increase the risk of stillbirth.

Now the question is: Are you eating enough iodine-rich foods?  To know, this book has covered all you need to know about why you need iodine, possible symptoms of deficiency, dosage required by our body, and how to eat, drink, and breathe the right sources to keep your iodine needs stable.

While treatments include iodine treatment of cancer, infertility, thyroid disorder, mouth inflammation, fibrocystic breast disease, vaginitis, fatigue, Hashimoto's disease, Grave's disease, wounds, radiation exposure, goiter, cognitive issues, heart disease, and more, you need to know about iodine and human healthy living.

Waste of time

Get Dr. Brownstein's book instead. This is like a pamplet they would hand you at the docs office read out loud. Some of it is contradictory to what you find in better books like iodized salt is a great source of iodine. It's bad overall. Skip it.
