Hypothroidism (goiter), a micronutrient deficiency preventable and treatable with just pinches of iodized salt. Check the nutrients on your bottle of salt! Developed countries actually ban the sale of uniodized salt.

This is a massive goiter caused by the continued lack of iodine (a micronutrient) in his diet. This is a condition both preventable and treatable with just pinches of iodized salt. But, unlike western countries, the sale of uniodized salt is not regulated in developing countries.
