My brain is slow – iodine deficiency?

Iodine deficiency threatens healthy brain development for future Australians and New Zealanders. Iodine is an essential mineral needed for foetal brain growth and development. Unfortunately, the iodine status of Australians and New Zealanders has declined significantly in the last 50 years to levels indicative of mild to moderate iodine deficiency. In fact, a recent dietary survey estimated that diets of women of child bearing age in New Zealand contain approximately 65 μg/day of iodine, which is well below the proposed RDI of 220 μg/day for pregnant women. Further studies have shown that many pregnant women in Australia and New Zealand have suboptimal iodine status.
