A study finds that knowledge of iodine is poor in the UK

Research led by UK Iodine Group member, Dr Emilie Combet, has found that pregnant mothers are unaware of the importance of iodine. The study of over 1000 mothers, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, found that 84% were not aware that iodine was important during pregnancy and over half (56%) could not correctly identify iodine-rich foods.
