Re: iodine fear

This is kind of "funny", from your first link:

"In 1995, government officials, in their attempt to educate the population about the benefits of maternal health and prenatal care, aired a slideshow on official Pakistani television that identified Iodine as an important nutrient. Soon, rumors began that Iodine was a state-sponsored ingredient to promote infertility in order to control family size in a culture that values large families and devalues use of contraceptives. Some have gone far enough to suggest that adding Iodine is an international Conspiracy to contain Muslim population."

Now, we all know here that the importance of iodine in health has been all but forgotten, at least in the U.S. In fact, our environment is full of substances, government-sanctioned substances such as fluoride in water, that displace iodine from receptors. I would say that we here on this forum, have quite the healthy distrust of the government, the FDA, the "authorities".

What is our government did a 180 and began addressing iodine-deficiency related health issues? Because we're not far away from being in the same situation Pakistan is in...

Gotta say though, that the average Pakistani seems to be more aware than the average American...
