1924, iodine was first added
to table salt as a preventative
measure, and by 1940, the practice
was in general consumer use.
Table salt, by definition, is
mostly "sodium chloride"
(what chemists call a "halide"
- or a halogen tied to a mineral,
making it a "salt"

salt as a delivery vehicle for

they have just one electron
missing from their outer shell
