Somehow, I don’t take comfort in the analysis to a plane flight. Geez, what a toxic world we live in!

I was even more pleased when I looked at the current multivitamins we have to see if they had any iodine. I was happy to see they do, and even better, it is sourced from kelp!

With the addition of extra seaweed in our diets , I think my children are relatively protected, at least more so if they weren’t talking their vitamins.
