When my husband was a kid, he mentioned that most older people he knew had goiters.

We were told (I'd seen a few, but not like he described) that it was from lack of iodine.

So when I switched to kosher salt, he wasn't thrilled.

THEN I read in some article (many years ago, before internet, in a health-oriented magazine) that boiled cabbage can, after years, leach the body of iodine.

Now, we are NOT talking having it a few times a year, we're talking eating it every day in a nutrient-poor diet.

When I mentioned it to my husband, he immediately identified with it. His family were Eastern European immigrants, who would often subsist on boiled cabbage with a little bit of meat and seasonings, maybe some starch.

Interesting thought.
A bit of internet searching and it seems that cabbage, as well as all the other brassicas and soy are goitrogenic (can cause goitres). But, only if eaten raw and a lot. Apparently heat inactivates the goitrogens.

I purposely use iodized salt for most stuff.

Cauliflower leaves,boiled and grinned cure purulence and haemorrhoids (applied as cataplasms)
Mature eggplants musnít be lacking in the diabetics alimentation.Make dietetic treatments all summer season long.
Eggplants that have been anointed with albumen donít preserve fatness in preparation and are more digestible.
Broccoli, the vegetable with anticancer reputation musnít be boiled more than 10-15 minutes.Always choose only the really green ones,no stains,no yellow leaves!

Kale is high in vitamin C and is a good source of calcium. If a person is on a blood-thinner, vegetables such as cabbage and kale are not recommended for daily consumption because of the vitamin K. If you are on medications or cooking for someone who is, speaking with a nutritionist/dietician can help.

Although tomatoes are high in potassium, the heirloom varieties are better because hybrids are higher in sodium.

Kale is a vitamin K and A rich food, good for the immune system. I'm no expert but i'm pretty sure it's a good un.

Be careful with veggies that are high in K if you take a blood thinner.

No never tried it, sounds like it could be useful if it works properly. I'm a bit dubious with these things
