@dinesh:- Your friend is correct. Kindly follow. I want to add that It is important to have iodized salt in our diet because iodine is required for the synthesis of a hormone called thyroxine. Thyroxine is a very important hormone required metabolism, growth and development of body and brain. Iodine deficiency can result in various disorders like goitre, so it is necessary to consume iodized salt.

@khwaish:- Good job. Keep posting!!
