what is the importance of consuming iodised salt.

Hello Alicia,

We must consume iodised salt as it contains iodine which is very essential for the body. It is the main constituent of the hormone thyroxine hormones. The thyroxine hormones play a vital role in the growth of the body. Deficiency of iodine may cause a disease called goitre, which leads to the swelling of the thyroid gland. 

Hope it helps !!!!! All the best !!!!

Iodine is material for the synthetic hormones of thyroid glands, which situated at the base of the neck. Under the influence of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) released from the anterior pituitary gland, the thyroid secretes the hormone thyroxine (T4) into the bloodstream; it is essential for normal growth and development in children and normal metabolic rates in adults. Thyroxine (T4) and triodothyronine (T3) are the two principal hormones secreted by the thyroid gland to regulate metabolism.
