The amount of iodine added to salt is VERY small - and you can buy table salt without it.

Brine = salty water.
[And just a historical note, for most of mankind's history, the primary source of salt was evaporation of sea water. It's only been fairly recent that we've mined it. But even the mined stuff originally came from sea water deposits. See the book "Salt: A World History" by Kurlansky.]
