IODINE DEFICIENCY: 2 BILLION PEOPLE TO SUPPORT
Iodine is an essential element for living animals and the human diet but nowadays is hardly present in the Earth’s crust. Over hundreds of millions of years the iodine that was present has been leached out of the soil by floods and melted glaciers that carried it back to the sea which in turn has become progressively enriched with this element.
Salt is an important nutrient if used in small doses: probably you are eating more sodium than your necessity. And sodium consumption is related with increase of blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases (CVD’S). Cardiovascular diseases (CVD’s) are a global problem that cause the death of over 17 million people only in 2008. More of 3 million of these deaths can be prevented and occurs in people aged less than 60.
