Don’t I get enough iodine from salt?

Don’t I get enough iodine from salt?

According to Lynne Farrow, best selling author of the Iodine Crisis, the notion that refined iodized salt is sufficient is the most dangerous misconception about iodine.

From the time the salt leaves the factory and gets to the grocery shelf the salt has lost half its original iodine content. Once the iodized salt is opened in your home, the iodine escapes into the air. When finally ingested, only about 10% of the iodine is salt is absorbable. Furthermore, cooking destroys iodine. 

Farrow also explains that the “iodine” in salt is actually iodide. But it's important to understand that iodine, not iodide, is preferred by the breasts, which is why a combination of iodine and iodine (Lugol’s formula) is preferred for breast health.(1)
