what if you're already born?

This message is for women "in the child-bearing years." If that isn't you, then you don't have to worry.

What about its effects on young girls before their child-bearing years? Are eggs permanently affected?

Does anyone have more information on this?

Someone said kelp is a good substitute for KI. That's harmless, I think.
