To promote the Krakow Declaration on Iodine and the meeting held in Krakow on Wednesday 18th April to officially present this document, Biolution prepared a press release in English and also in German, for distribution in Austria.
The press release highlighted the concerns held by scientists that 50% of all new-borns in Europe do not reach their full cognitive potential due to iodine deficiency. Coupled with a deteriorating commitment by policy makers to address iodine deficiency in Europe, the Krakow Declaration on Iodine is a call to action to European policy makers to support measures to eliminate iodine deficiency. This is a historic event as it is the first time that a pan-European call to action, from the 31 EUthyroid partners representing 27 countries, has been made.
If you wish to support activities towards the eradication of iodine deficiency, please sign the Krakow Declaration on Iodine here: www.iodinedeclaration.eu
