Feb 20, 2006; 2:39pm: So apparently kiddies today aren't getting enough iodine in their diets, possibly leading to "mental and growth retardation". The study has "prompted calls" for all edible salt to be iodised.
Does that mean uniodised salt would be banned? What about uniodised Malden Sea Salt, the best cooking salt in the world?
There's iodine in tonic water. Give the kiddies a daily G&T instead.
LATER: When I mentioned the above issue and my solution, Boycat's Mum pointed out that the kids can just drink the tonic. D'oh!
