Iodine is not risk free for some people in some situations, so to have it pretty
much unavoidable would be questionable, IMHO.

| pharmacist to determine if they contain iodine.

Iodized salt is readily available everywhere I've lived in the USA, no more
expensive than regular table salt, but some folks who won't use it. They see it as a
"poison" like they see fluoride in water as a poison or evil plot.
