Do you use the iodized salt?

Here the law requires that all the salt must be iodized. It is difficult to buy the normal salt. Actually I don't think it is very necessary. Since in my city we often have seafood and we are not lack of the iodine. Perhaps in some other places in my city the people need this element. But not all the people need it. As too many iodine will be not good for the health. How about you?

In the world only the 40% of the population is at risk of iodine deficiency. Not enough iodine is a risk and too much iodine is also a risk. I know that I eat many food containing iodine, so I prefer to use natural sea salt instead than iodized salt.

@youless It's crazy how governments take a decision without considering that not everyone needs iodine. When I lived near the Mediterranean sea we were able to buy salt without iodine everywhere. Here in Switzerland there is no sea and all the salt contains iodine.

We have a few choices here regarding table salt-- it can be iodine rich or sea mineral rich, either way I use both sparingly and according to my doctor should use a bit more since I do have thick blood and low blood pressure, which is not bad or dangerous, but can make me more tired easily

I am a salt junkie, lol I know it's so bad for me but I can't help it. I am a healthy eater most of the time and I am also pretty active. Salt is my "treat" for most days. I have cut down on a great amount of salt in my diet though, by using fresh garlic, onions and other fresh spices to flavor my food instead of reaching for the salt shaker!
