I'd just like to say that iodized salt tastes all icky, like Joy-Joy Mit Iodine. Kosher salt's da bomb when you just want pure salt taste with none of that purple chemical flavor. Sea salt ain't bad neither, depending on the sea.

The better question would have been what words/phrases will turn the poster into an "involuntary organ donor"...

Related link shows the frequency of deletion by region.

Which pretty much amounts to "STFU Tibet".

I can't seem to track down a link to the study itself, though.

...ah. Strike that. Found where it WOULD be. It'd be here, but it's not up yet. (Should it show up, whoever finds it give a holler.)

Do you realize that iodization is the most monstrously conceived and dangerous Democratic plot we have ever had to face?

Three months later, through the same application, the researchers checked a random set of "Weibos," as well as a set that included politically charged messages, to see if any had been deleted.

Given the percentage of deletion...I would say it isn't really the government directly...that or they are all aboard the fail boat.

Their Boobies of retrieved data would have never mentioned Falun Gong's greatest hits in the Boobies.

I guess they want their people to get goiters.

As was pointed out, it's probably a FU to Tibet... Tibet has tons of rock salt from dried ancient lake beds (historically it was a major trade item) but it doesn't have any iodine, so iodine deficiencies are a big deal there.

Ya know it's odd about China and Tibet, because when Germany did something similar back in the later 1930s and early 1940s, the world had a slightly more... dramatic... response to the situation.

It may also be related to the Fukushima nuclear disaster: There was a major run on iodized salt in the PRC immediately after, as people panicked worrying about the radiation.

One of the byproducts of a nuclear reaction is Iodine-131. It has a half-life of about a week. Iodine (radioactive or not) is only absorbed by the thyroid gland, so taking large doses of iodine when you might be exposed to I-131 is a reasonable action to take: By saturating the thyroid with Iodine, it can't take up the radioactive version, which if you do ingest it, will get excreted fairly quickly. Because of it's properties of a short half-life and selective uptake by the thyroid, I-131 is used medically to 'burn out' thyroid cancer.

Problem is, there isn't enough Iodine in iodized salt to help all that much. You'd have to eat an unhealthy amount of it to prevent I-131 uptake by the thyroid. The government of the PRC knows this, of course, and they might be taking the view that suppressing any discussion is a better course than allowing all discussion.
