“Why did information on (the many benefits of) iodine disappear from medical schools and medical libraries?”
And yes, it is not just the information about the importance of iodine that disappeared from the bookshelves.
As a side note:
Exposing the iodized salt scam …
… the iodide content of iodized salt is ridiculously low (just enough to ‘help’ prevent goiter),
… of which only 10% is bioavailable,
… your body needs iodine and iodide, not just potassium iodide,
… by the time the iodized salt reaches the grocery store about 50% of its iodide content has ‘vaporized’,
… store the salt another 30 days and the salt loses (about) another 50% of its iodide,
… iodized salt contains lots of aluminum,

Whole Body Iodine Sufficiency
The human body can hold up to a total of 1500mg of iodine. Of this amount, the thyroid gland holds up to 50mg. Twenty percent of total body iodine sits in the skin, 32 percent is in the muscles, and 35 percent is in the fat. Iodine supports many bodily functions other than being carried around by thyroid hormone. In the current medical literature there is much debate on iodine and autoimmune problems. This topic warrants further discussion with a look at the broader role of iodine for total body health.
On completion, attendees should be able to:
Understand the role of iodine in skin health
Describe the role of iodine in intracellular thyroid hormone function and thyroid gland health
Understand why the vast amount of total body iodine is located in the fat cells of the body
Understand why treating with iodine in some individuals results in a goiter while in others it takes away goiter
