The Io­dine Is Im­por­tant

Consumer Voice - - The Surveillance Series -

If our body does not have enough io­dine, hy­pothy­roidism – low thy­roid hor­mone lev­els – can be de­vel­oped. Symp­toms of hy­pothy­roidism in­clude slug­gish­ness or fa­tigue, weight gain, dry skin, and sen­si­tiv­ity to tem­per­a­ture changes. In in­fants and chil­dren, hy­pothy­roidism can af­fect phys­i­cal and men­tal de­vel­op­ment. Some peo­ple with hy­pothy­roidism de­velop an ex­tremely large thy­roid, known as goitre. Iodised salt has proven to be the most ef­fec­tive means of pro­vid­ing one with con­sis­tent lev­els of io­dine ca­pa­ble of elim­i­nat­ing th­ese ter­ri­ble dis­eases.

But?

Be­ing the main source of sodium, a small amount of salt is im­por­tant for good health. It helps in main­tain­ing the cor­rect vol­ume of cir­cu­lat­ing blood and tis­sue flu­ids in the body. But when con­sumed in large amounts, salt makes this ‘cor­rect vol­ume’ its first vic­tim. When the salt lev­els are too high in the body, kid­neys can­not keep up and let salt en­ter one’s blood­stream and creates hy­per­ten­sion in the body. Too much salt in the blood also causes wa­ter re­ten­tion as salt draws more wa­ter into the blood. This fur­ther raises the blood pres­sure. World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion (WHO) rec­om­mends less than five grams (about one tea­spoon) of salt per per­son per day. Re­mem­ber that many pro­cessed and con­ve­nience foods, pre­served foods, and sun-dried foods as well as canned foods con­trib­ute to higher in­takes of salt.
