Someone emailed me who was unable to join the boards but wanted me to post this for them:

" I am just asking that you give a last hope
to some of the sad suffers of acne this one last piece of info. I am now 47 and have had acne on and off for over 20 years. A long time ago I read the connection between the mineral
found in some salts called iodine. I immediately bought uniodized salt (it says it does not
have iodine added!). Also, many vitamins contain iodine (Centrum,etc.) This dramatically
( for the better) helped my cystic acne and is a huge piece to the puzzle. Please post this info on your
website if you can. Thank-you!!--C. Patouhas"

Interesting..

Though I'm a little confused (and not 100% I know the meaning of the word.. bb_icon_rolleyes.gif bb_icon_mrgreen.gif ), but I'm assuming 'uniodized' = without iodine; 'iodized' = with iodine. Is that correct - or have it got it the wrong way around? And, if it's the former, and that's true - then surely you'd want to get 'iodized' salt..not 'uniodized'? bb_icon_confused.gif

cynic:

uniodized = without iodine
iodized = with iodine

What the woman is saying is iodine is bad news, and avoiding it helped reduce her acne.

hi June biggrin.gif

-----
Some food commodity items are fortified with iodine in countries were there is no iodine in the soil (like my country - NZ). This is because iodine defiency can cause some serious health issues in itself.

I don't think cutting back on iodine is bad. For most people it can probably only be a good thing. I just want people to read up a bit before they do - particularly if they have thyroid issues already.

The sea salt I bought from the grocery store says it does not contain iodine. So whether it has iodine or not depends if the manufacture adds it into it.

If you buy sea salt, make sure it is Unrefined Sea Salt.

I agree w/ the iodine link. I can't eat shellfish foods w/o breakout. I don't miss shrimp, but I sure miss lobsters...and crabs. boohoo.

i think most likely there is a very big difference between vitamins found in FORTIFIED foods and vitamins found NATURALLY in food.

yes, i do believe sea salt contain iodine, but it does so naturally. i'd stay away from all fortified food.

i eat a good about of veggies with naturally high iodine content. and all i use is sea salt. i don't see it affecting my skin negatively. my skins been very good on the low simple carb/low sugar/low dairy diet. also, i've read many people have notice their skin improved when they stopped taking commercial vitamin supplements. so my theory is if it's not naturally occuring, don't eat it!

u should avoid iodine in gr8er amounts that the RDI of 120-150mcg. normal amounts wont aggravate the skin but amounts higher than that worsen your skin

Even if Iodine defiency CAN ultimately result in death, the effects of iodine deficiency are EXTREMELY noticeable WAY before death occurs. I think one of the major side effects is a hugely enlarged thyroid gland in your neck.
