10. Good Question... But...
Turns out that there's a few problems with iodized salt:

1. People are eating less salt than they used to because it's supposed to be dangerous (it may actually be the opposite of dangerous for most people...), so many of us never reach for the salt shaker.
2. Only table salt contains iodine, not salt in processed foods. More of us eat processed foods these days.
3. Iodine in iodized salt goes away reasonably quickly when exposed to air. Salt that's been sitting in a shaker for a few weeks has practically no iodine left.

My research on this subject has been, very, very interesting.
