One reason I use mostly un-iodized salt. I figure I get my daily dose of iodine in my multivitamins. Iodize salt also screws up pickling processes, as with pickles.

For some reason, I memorized that when I was a kid after reading the Morton's label. Thought the chemical sounded kind of funny. It's food safe, which is good. :)
