Senegal is the largest salt producer in west Africa. It is exported across the region by up to 3000 collectors, men and women who work 6–7 hours a day. This white gold provide employment for young population who come from all over Western Africa. However, many harvesters fail to iodise the salt. Lack of iodine results in an underactive thyroid but also leads to mental impairment in new born children if not consumed during pregnancy.
