More families focusing on healthy eating (choosing Celtic sea salt or Himalayan crystal salt over highly processed iodized table salt) so it's not a shock that the US National Health and Nutrition Survey tested iodine levels between 1971 and 2000, and found that levels dropped by 50% over this time period. (1)

When iodine deficiency exists, it can be responsible for poor school performance, reduced intellectual ability, impaired work capacity, and a mean IQ loss of 13.5 points—which can be the difference between a successful child and a troubled one. As a result, they have declared that iodine deficiency is the greatest single cause of preventable brain damage in childhood worldwide.

What are the symptoms of iodine deficiency? All of the symptoms of iodine deficiency are related to its effect on the thyroid:

Hypothyroidism – "As the body’s iodine levels fall, hypothyroidism may develop, since iodine is essential for making thyroid hormone. While this is uncommon in North America, iodine deficiency is the most common cause of hypothyroidism worldwide." (2)

Pregnancy-related problems – "Iodine deficiency is especially important in women who are pregnant or nursing their infants. Severe iodine deficiency in the mother has been associated with miscarriages, stillbirth, preterm delivery, and congenital abnormalities in their babies."(2)

Issues for the child- "Children of mothers with severe iodine deficiency during pregnancy can have intellectual disabilities and problems with growth, hearing, and speech. Even mild iodine deficiency during pregnancy may be associated with low intelligence in children." (2)

Goiter – "Without adequate iodine, the thyroid progressively enlarges (develops a goiter) as it tries to keep up with demand for thyroid hormone production." (2)
