- Iodized salt- A refined salt with added potassium iodide, a type of iodine. It was created by the government in the 1900’s when goiters (enlargement of thyroid gland) became prevalent due to lack of foods and soils naturally rich in iodine. The FDA has taught that this salt is better than raw versions, which is why an unrefined salt must state that it does not contain iodide, a necessary nutrient. However, iodized salt is in no way “special,” and if anything, has contributed to the rise of non-goiter thyroid disease due to the lack of important nutrients.
How much should I consume?
Matthew 5:13-14 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world…”
