Excerpt
1. WTRODUCTION Iodine deficiency is the world's single most significant cause of preventable brain damage and mental retardation. The clinical and sub-clinical manifestations of iodine deficiency are collectively included in the term Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) and affect all stages of human growth and development; the fetus, the neonate, the child and the adolescent, and the adults. All these effects can be prevented and controlled by correction of iodine deficiency. As per the estimates of the World Health Organization (WHO) of January 1997, about 807 million people, i.e. 13% of the world's estimated population of 5881 million are reported to have IDD.
