Iodine maybe a problem

There's a new deficiency thats going unoticed in todays society, that may be the lack of Iodine in our diet,
Here's a good article on the concerns that are being made due to changes in food production and normals.
Diets that are extremly high in iodine have the lowest breast cancers and weight problems.
IE Japan where they consume about 14 mg of iodine daily in the form of KELP ,the US reccomended amount 120mcg which is about .012 mg .
SO there be some confusion about RDA.

It was my understanding that Iodine was an additive to salt, salt is prevalent in processed/fast/junk food so one would think that getting the right amount of Iodine wouldn't be an issue here. I'll be on the lookout for people with goiters.

It doesn’t surprise me that the Japanese eat a large quantity of Iodine considering all the sea food they eat.
