Both high and low population iodine intake increase the risk of thyroid disease in a population. This should be taken into account when planning iodine fortification programs. A number of methods are available to adjust iodine content of diet, among them the most important non-salt targets for fortification are bread and dairy products. Monitoring and adjusting population iodine intake is important for public health.
