  • The Elimination of Iodine Deficiency Disorders, A Resource Package for Central and Eastern Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States and Baltic States Berg JN, Maas JP, Paterson JA, Krause GF, Davis LE (1984). (wikipedia.org)
  • Iodine deficiency is a range of disorders that affect many different populations. (wikipedia.org)
  • By 2008, it was estimated that 72 per cent of households in developing countries were consuming iodized salt and the number of countries in which iodine deficiency disorders were a public health concern reduced by more than half from 110 to 47 countries. (wikipedia.org)
  • triiodothyronine
  • In mild iodine deficiency, levels of triiodiothyronine (T3) may be elevated in the presence of low levels of levothyroxine, as the body converts more of the levothyroxine to triiodothyronine as a compensation. (wikipedia.org)
  • synergistic
  • His book Terminus Brain (1997) explores how and why the human brain is the only part of the eco-system at risk from its own behaviour:'Environmentally-Mediated Intellectual Decline' (EMID) caused by the presence of environmental neurotoxins (e.g. mercury, lead), the absence of vital environmental micro-nutrients (e.g. iodine, iron), and synergistic effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • micronutrient
  • Iodine is a micronutrient the body needs to properly produce thyroid hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • Iodine deficiency diseases (IDDs) are able to develop before birth, so it is crucial for all populations to have sufficient levels of the micronutrient and prevent such diseases from developing early on. (wikipedia.org)
  • It was developed by Venkatesh Mannar, Executive Director of the Micronutrient Initiative and University of Toronto Professor Levente Diosady, who discovered a process for coating iron particles with a vegetable fat to prevent the negative interaction of iodine and iron. (wikipedia.org)
  • soil
  • Iodine content in food varies by soil content, fertilizers, and irrigation. (everydayhealth.com)
  • It is also common in mountainous regions of the world where food is grown in iodine-poor soil. (wikipedia.org)
  • These three, in the form of water and carbon dioxide.Other nutrients are absorbed from soil (exceptions include some parasitic or carnivorous plants). (wikipedia.org)
  • iodised salt
  • The present study aimed to evaluate iodine status in school-aged children (6-12 years) and to monitor the use of iodised salt in school canteens. (mdpi.com)
  • Humans
  • Seeds of plants are a good source of food for animals, including humans, because they contain the nutrients necessary for the plant's initial growth, including many healthful fats, such as omega fats. (wikipedia.org)
  • inadequate
  • however, recent studies indicate reemergence of inadequate iodine status in different population groups. (mdpi.com)
  • metabolic
  • Nutrients can be incorporated into cells for metabolic purposes or excreted by cells to create non-cellular structures, such as hair, scales, feathers, or exoskeletons. (wikipedia.org)
  • iodide
  • Iodine occurs in many oxidation states, including iodide (I−), iodate (IO− 3), and the various periodate anions. (wikipedia.org)
  • metabolism
  • Further influence of nutrition and metabolism on the thyroid gland is the absorption of one nutrient in relation to another. (holistichorse.com)
  • Beyond that, iodine supports healthy metabolism, balanced moods, healthy blood pressure and may also be useful in preventing cancer. (mercola.com)
  • irrigation
  • Iodine supplemented irrigation water in combination to iodized salt helps in reducing the neonatal and infant mortality rates. (wikipedia.org)
  • food
  • In 777 women, iodine concentration was measured in spot urine samples by inductively coupled plasma/mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). In addition, 49 of the women collected a 24-h urine sample for assessment of UIE and iodine intake from food frequency questionnaire (FFQ). (mdpi.com)
  • What Are the Best Food Sources of Iodine? (everydayhealth.com)
  • Levels of iodine in food vary according to where it comes from. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • As a result of restricted diet, isolation, intermarriage, etc., as well as low iodine content in their food, children often had peculiar stunted bodies and retarded mental faculties, a condition later known to be associated with thyroid hormone deficiency. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus, some forms of food processing may reduce the amount of available essential nutrient in a dog's food. (wikipedia.org)
