Ban on non-Iodised Salt?

Click on the title link...

I wasn't aware of the ban either.

Basically, I too feel it doesn't make sense to impose a blanket ban on something especially when the ban is on something as basic as salt. A more sensible approach may be to clearly mark two kinds of salt packages indicating whether Iodine is included or not. I have seen this in the US. Salt containers without Iodine have the text 'This salt does not provide Iodine, a necessary ingredient'. It leaves the consumer to choose.

Our Government seems fond of making these kind of mass decisions without accounting for deeper repercussions - example, a blanket censor of blogs a few days back.
