I knew I had missed something in an earlier post:

"The thyroid gland's need for iodine will ensure that it has the "first pick" of iodine which, in a deficient state, may mean that other tissues of the body can show signs of severe deficiency." [p. 179]

I interpret this to mean that if you're not getting enough iodine, what iodine you DO get goes to the thyroid first.  Any iodine remaining will then go to the other glands and tissues.  To take that a step further, I would read this as, if you have cystic breasts, ovarian cysts, cancer, etc., that's a pretty good sign you're not getting enough iodine.  Just my  2cents.
