Keeping Your Joints and Tendons Fit Most of us rarely ever think about our musculoskeletal system — until something goes wrong, whether it’s a minor sprain or something more serious such as broken bones or arthritis.

In 2008 researchers from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Texas at Arlington, were so concerned about a prevailing national iodine deficiency, that a study was conducted of nearly 90 samples of iodized table salt. The results of that study confirmed a troubling trend: Only less than half of those tested samples contained amounts of iodine sufficient for optimal health.
