Question.
Why is the use of iodised salt advisable?

solution:
Iodine is important for the thyroid gland to make thyroxin hormone. Thyroxine regulates carbohydrates, proteins and fat metabolism in the body so as to provide the best balance for growth. If iodine is deficient in the diet, thyroxine cannot be produced and the thyroid gland at the neck swells, a condition called goitre. Use of iodized table-salt can provide the required amount of iodine in the diet.
