Regular table salt or iodized salt?

Do you make it a point to buy and use regular table salt or iodized salt? It's important to use iodized salt in order to help reduce the risks of goiter but I think there are still those of you out there who still prefer to use the uniodized version. Do share!

I have always used regular salt. I have not tried the iodized salt. I also think it's better for our health but never made it a point to buy it and replace the regular salt. I guess the taste is different heh? Now that you are talking about it I think I will try it the next time I need to buy salt and try to stick with it.

Research findings revealed that iodized salt is far more important than the ordinary salt because it is an effective prophylaxis for goiter. Further, low intake of iodized salt may result to mental retardation, cretinism and reduction of IQ capability.
