Let them Eat (Un-iodized) Salt

From Inter Press Service:
"Karpov also told IPS: "In Russia, there is solid opposition (to iodising salt) and that opposition is in the commercial world where people want to make some business out of this." 
"One source at the Belgrade conference, who asked not to be named, told IPS: "The people who are against this in Russia and the Ukraine are pharmaceutical companies who want to market more iodine tablets, salt producers, other food industries and the government. They say that iodine is available in other products and therefore there is no need for legislation on mandatory salt iodisation."" IPS: Market Interests Fight Iodized Salt
