Iodine deficiency affects somewhere between 50-70% of the world’s population, and it’s preventable. More than 96 percent of over 5,000 patients tested deficient.
The thyroid is one of the body’s master glands responsible for balancing hormones.
Thyroid hormones also regulate our metabolism and prevent some cancers like those of the breast, thyroid gland, ovary and prostate – cancers that today we are seeing at alarmingly increasing rates.
Many of us just aren’t eating enough iodine-rich foods – and we only need a tiny amount – so are therefore suffering with a range of health problems known as Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD).
