Does drinking RO water lead to iodine deficiency?
Q: I have been living in NOIDA for the past 7 years. Since the water in Noida is not drinkable, we use reverse osmosis (RO) water. I came to know that people using RO water for long durations may suffer from various ailments related to thyroid due to iodine deficiency. What are other negative aspects of RO water
A:No, this information is incorrect. Use iodised salt in normal cooking and it will provide adequate iodine.
