Iodine is an essential mineral to the human body yet is one of the minerals we are most deficient in. The human body cannot produce iodine. We depend on food to provide the iodine we need. It is obvious that the iodine content of the thyroid gland is dependent upon the iodine in the food & water we eat and drink. Iodine deficiency is a world health problem. The most recognized form of deficiency is goiter. Worldwide iodine deficiency is thought to be the most common preventable cause of mental retardation. Scientific studies have discovered that if we don't get enough iodine, it can reduce the capability of our organs & lead to a host of problems including goiter, muscle pain, reduced alertness, dry mouth & dry skin. Iodine is necessary for proper function of the thyroid gland. All of our blood passes through the thyroid. During this time the thyroid's secretion of iodine kills weak microorganisms that have gained entry into the blood through an injury to the skin, lining of the nose or throat, or through absorption of food from the digestive tract. If the gland has its normal supply of iodine strong microorganisms are rendered weaker during their passage through the gland. With each pass through the thyroid they are made weaker until finally they are killed.
