Article on iodine deficiency in UK pregnant women in The Guardian

An article on iodine deficiency in the UK was published in the Guardian this week (7th December 2015).

UK Iodine members (Professor John Lazarus and Dr Sarah Bath) were interviewed by Becky McCall, the medical journalist, who wrote the article. In it she refers to the iodine situation in UK and notes the important research conducted by UK Iodine Group members in relation to the adverse effects of maternal iodine deficiency and subsequent school performance of their children. The article discusses ways to ensure adequate intake (including whether supplements should be taken by pregnant women). More information can be found here.
