Iodine, ingesting or not?

Heverton Alves Peres

Currently, the population use medicines that contain fluorine/chlorine and ingest bromide that is found in breads, thus they occupy the place iodine injuring the thyroid. Iodine deficiency is a major public health problem thus as medical iodophobia. This mini-review addresses the effect of iodine supplementation in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. In this baseline, there are six systematic reviews published in the last 6 years beyond WHO/UNICEF encourage the safe use iodine in the dosages of 200 µg/day during in pregnancy and 250 µg/day in lactating women. However, one study Australian showed that of 396 healthcare providers only 71% were aware of the National Health and Medical Research Council's recommendation for iodine supplementation, (38%) were aware of the recommended dose or and (44%) duration. Beyond of knowing therapeutic property iodine, a clinical trial showed that iodine supplementation in overweight women reduces the prevalence of hypercholesterolemia. Although there is strong evidence showed that iodine prevents and fight various diseases some doctors and gynecologists still not prescribe iodine in pregnancy and lactation by fear, ignorance or lack of knowledge. Thereby, one change of paradigm in the current medical model in relation in to iodine intake needs to be urgently done.
