Dear Student

Iodine is necessary for the thyroid gland to make thyroxin hormone. Thyroxin regulates carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism in the body so as to provide the best balance for growth. If iodine is deficient in our diet, there is a possibility that we might suffer from goitre. The thyroid gland enlarges causing swelling in the neck. Iodised common salt contains proper content of iodine. Thus, to avoid deficiency of iodine, iodised salt is recommended.

Thanks
