Ok, so I have used the search function and finally got tired of sifting thru the five-kajillion radiation related iodine threads. My question is this. Since iodine is necessary to prevent a myriad of diseases, what is a good way to supplement ones iodine intake once the iodized salt has run out? I know about kelp but don't really forsee living next to the ocean post SHTF.

Certain types of seaweed have Iodine in them.

But this only helps people who live close to the ocean, and where those types of seaweed live.

Not all salt has iodine in it.

I can see someone going to china-mart, buying a dozen containers of sea salt, and then realizing months later that the salt they bought does not have iodine in it.
