The typical American diet is super saturated with iodine due to all the processed foods consumed and their excessive sodium levels.  Himalayan salt is less processed, retains it's original mineral content and does not contain additives, unlike table salt, which is heavily refined, bleached, supplemented with iodine and mixed with anti-caking agents like magnesium carbonate or sodium aluminosilicate.  Switching your table salt to pink Himalayan salt will reduced your overall iodine load.  The recommended daily intake (RDI) for iodine is 150mcg, which is achievable from a diverse consumption of whole foods without the need for any supplementation for a healthy adult.  Foods rich in iodine are seaweeds, cod fish, dairy (milk/yogurt), shrimp, tuna and eggs.  Symptoms of too much iodine look very similar to deficiencies and only trace amounts are needed for good health.
