An Under-Recognized Epidemic A deficiency in Iodine, one of the most misunderstood elements in the human body, may result in some serious consequences such as mental retardation, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), infertility, thyroid problems, as well as cancer of the breast, prostate, ovaries, thyroid and uterus. Iodine is found in every cell in the body but mostly concentrated in the glandular system, and iodine has long been known as the element required for thyroid hormone production. It is also responsible for the production of all of the other hormones of the body and adequate iodine levels are necessary for proper immune system function. Iodine further contains potent antibacterial, anti-parasitic, antiviral, and anticancer properties, and is essential for the normal growth and development of children. The World Health Organisation estimates iodine deficiency affects up to 1.5 billion people, but due to a lot of misinformation about iodine people are afraid to take it as a supplement. Working with a qualified health professional, though, iodine levels can be maintained properly and better health achieved.
