What can Iodine be Used for?
Iodine can be used for a variety of industrial and medical applications, including:
- Production of ethylenediamine dihydroioide, used in livestock feeds

- Was used in the past as an expectorant, but this practice is increasingly uncommon
- Used to treat several thyroid conditions, such as block the uptake of iodine-131 in patients exposed to radiation
