The Truth About Table Salt and The Chemical Industry

Written by Print  E-mail

Chemical bottlesThe mainstream media, at the behest of the misguided medical establishment, villainizes salt. Society is constantly told that salt can raise the blood pressure, cause cardiac failure, damage the kidneys, aggravate asthma, and cause kidney stones. The establishment makes no distinctions between the different types of salt.

Sea Salt

Unrefined and unadulterated sea salt is not harmful in moderate amounts. Its benefits over table salt contrasts the immense differences between God's engineering and man's. The human body requires a certain amount of sodium for optimum health, and we could not live without it. Healthy sea salts selectively make a body a hostile environment for pathogens, such as bacteria and parasites. Its specific toxicity to pathogenic life forms is why salt is such an excellent preservative, while leaving the healthy foods completely intact. Even mainstream medical doctors will admit these things when probed, but their institutionalized attacks upon salt continue unabated.

Sea salt naturally contains selenium, which helps to chelate toxic heavy metals from the body. It also contains boron which helps prevent osteoporosis, and chromium which regulates blood sugar levels. Sea salt is one of the few sources for safe copper ingestion, and copper helps the body to form new arteries whenever the main arteries become too clogged. Small quantities of sea salt will actually lower the blood pressure of most individuals, because it provides the trace minerals that aid with blood pressure regulation. It can only stabilize the blood pressure when the industry-depleted salts are removed from the diet. Mineral deficiencies are partly responsible for the rising obesity epidemic. Obese people are invariably malnourished, and their bodies are starving, because regardless of how much they eat, they are not getting the minerals and nutrients that they need. The processed table salts and conventionally grown produce are a big part of the problems.

Table Salt

The more common "refined" table salts have been been stripped of their minerals during processing, which manufacturers then sell to supplement companies. It makes the unmistakable point that the producers of table salts are intentionally stripping what they know to be the most nutritious part of the salt, and actually increasing profits by malnourishing their own customers.

Table salt has all of its minerals removed, which would otherwise help to balance the blood pressure. Consequently, table salt causes gross blood pressure fluctuations, instead of stabilizing it. This well-known danger has created an entire industry of "low sodium" foods.

Processed foods are very high in sodium, but it is always in the form of table salt, artificial flavors, or flavor enhancers. In the ultimate heart-health irony, low sodium products often contain monosodium glutamate, a sodium-based excitotoxin that causes heart attacks in people who do not have enough magnesium (from organic vegetables and sea salt). It is probably the most common reason for mysterious heart failures in young athletes, who simply fall-over dead at sporting events. The profuse sweating imbalances their electrolytes even further, to become the final straw on the camel's back.

Contrary to popular belief, table salt is not just sodium chloride. It also contains additives that are designed to make it more free-flowing. Ferrocyanide, talc, and silica aluminate are commonly included. Aluminum intake leads to neurological disorders, particularly when no selenium is provided to help the body to chelate it. Aluminum bio-accumulates inside the body, causing further degeneration over time. Talc is a known carcinogen, though its effects upon ingestion have not been heavily studied. While it was once used in baby powders, the majority of such products now use cornstarch instead of talc, because of the known health risks. The F.D.A. has a special provision to allow talc in table salt, even whilst it is prohibited in all other foods, due to toxicity issues. According to current regulations, table salt can be up to 2% talc.

Fake Sea Salts

Some companies sell bright white salts that are labeled as "sea salt", but they have had all of their minerals removed, just like table salt. It is the minerals that give real sea salt an off-white color. Depending on where it originates, real sea salt will be either gray or slightly pink. Salt that contains saltwater minerals is never bright white. Most of the sea salt that is available at major retailers is just as mineral depleted as table salt. These alleged sea salts sometimes contain anti-caking agents too, because they are produced by the same despicable companies that produce table salt. The reputable sea salt companies that we have investigated do not use any anti-caking agents or other impurities.

Iodine and Iodide

The potassium iodide that is added to table salt is not adequate to compensate for most iodine deficiencies. It is usually sufficient to stop goitrous boils from swelling in the neck, which are caused by an extreme deficiency. However, not enough iodine can be obtained from table salt to maintain optimal health, unless a dangerous amount of sodium is consumed. Naturally-occurring iodine is present in unadulterated sea salt with complimentary minerals, but even the vastly superior and healthier sea salt may not be enough for a tiny fraction of people who have extreme iodine deficiencies, which are caused by fluoride toxicity and other mitigating factors.

F.D.A. Deception About Sea Salt's Iodine

The F.D.A. mandates that any salt, which does not have iodine added (at the chemical plant) must bear a warning label. It must state, "This salt does not supply iodide, a necessary nutrient". As a result, sea salt distributors are required to lie on their labeling. Unadulterated sea salt usually contains more iodide than iodized table salt does. Iodide is iodine that is mixed with a salt. In fact, iodide really ought to be called, "potassium iodine". The naturally-occurring iodine in sea salt is maligned by false labeling to favor the chemical industry's bastardized products and profits. Moreover, the inorganic iodide in table salt is less healthy, because it is lacking the trace minerals that work with it, that are found only in natural sea salts. Sea salt distributors are not allowed to put any of this truthful information on their labels, under the threat of serious legal trouble for violating the disingenuous labeling requirements.

    I have been getting Hymalayan (pink) salt and have natural sea salt (unproc.) I totally agree with you on the salt issue.

  • Rodney M.  - salt

    I've been using a product called real salt from an ocean bed in Utah.. Feel much better too.

  • Ron P  - The food industry doesn't use table salt

    quoting from the text above... All the while, the chemical industry places processed table salt in virtually every food that we eat. Very little table salt is used in food processing. The salt primarily used is canning salt. If table salt was cheaper in the bulk quantities that they use and if it worked, which it doesn't, they need and use salts natural hydrophilic properties.

    Canning salt is table salt minus the iodide, and perhaps an anti-caking agent. So that is like implying that a soft drink is healthy because it is Pepsi instead of Coca Cola. See, nothing up this sleeve!

    Let me guess: You're either a chemist or a pharmacist. If that is true, then "keep up the good work!". That's what you really wanted to hear, right? Now you can feel better about what you are doing to people, and we can all feel better about how you poison all of us on a professional basis.

    Next time, you might want to try an easier target than The Health Wyze Report.

  • brad  - Canning salt?

    Well put Thomas, I'm so very proud of health wyze for all it's diligence. I was easily able to find that canning salt was table salt with one quick google. This person obviously did no research at all.

    God bless you guys. The Health Wyze Report, not an easy target at all.

  • kenny

    yeah and i love how they say table salt is essential cuz of iodide in it. because iodide can come from nowhere else.

  • Tina Daum  - What about iodized table salt?
    avatar

    The label says it is supposed to have 45-49%
    of iodine in it.
    Is that not true?

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)
    avatar

    No, salt does not contain 40% or more of iodine. It may contain 40% of the F.D.A.'s daily recommended amount, but there is an extremely small amount in the salt. Also, unprocessed sea salt typically contains more iodine than iodized table salt.

  • Tina Daum  - Understanding Salt
    avatar

    Okay help me understand I am not very good at math.
    It says on the label in a 1/4 tsp. of salt
    you get 33% iodine.
    how much of that 1/4 of a tsp. would that be.

    Go to the first article on my blog there is a pic of a label from iodized salt.

    Thanks
