Pound for pound, the most concentrated sources of iodine you're ever
going to see in a store are iodidized salt and dietary supplements.
There are also some good food sources of iodine. Remember, iodine is one

is 150mcg a day, and we all know how RDAs represent more than an average
person actually needs.
