SPARKIE1964- Goiters are often times caused by hashimoto thyroiditis, where antibodies are attacking the thyroid, it has nothing to do with low iodine and if you add iodine to a diet of a person with hashimoto it often times makes it worse. Iodine is a very controversial topic. it is good for a person with a normal thyroid yes but even too much for a person in great health can cause hypothyroidism. Big problem is you dont know when your getting too much.
even here where they encourage Iodine for hypothyroidism they say NOT to take it if you have hashimoto!
and Dr. Brownstien who encourages Iodine for normal thyroid and conditions that are NOT Autoimmune he too says its not good for hashimoto...
As long as your eating a healthy diet you should get plenty of iodine and should have no reason to supplement with kelp seaweed etc.
