I was reading something on the internet and found this:

Iodine Deficiency
Lack of sufficient iodine -– iodine deficiency -– increases the risk of hypothyroidism and goiter. Iodine deficiency is more common in developing nations, and countries where table salt is not iodized. In the U.S., iodine deficiency is seen mainly in people who restrict their salt intake, and in some people who live in areas –- usually mountainous or inland –- where there are lower iodine levels in soils and foods.

I have kind of a dumb question. Would someone get their needed iodine requirements if they limited ADDED salt and table salt?

I don't go to extreme lengths to avoid salt or anything but I don't ever add salt to my food either.

Just wondering.
