Salt is a basic necessity in every home and family, it is one of the things man cannot do without on this Earth. Asides the fact that it is what gives taste to the food we cook, it also gives nutritional benefits to our body. The body uses salt to balance fluids in the blood and maintain healthy blood pressure, and it is also essential for nerve and muscle function.
However, it is not all type of salt that is beneficial to the human health, it is not all type of salt that should be consumed by man, as there are some type of salts which are poisonous to the human health. I'm sure many of us aren't aware of this, which is why I decided to write this article, to create awareness on the dangers of using salts which we are not supposed to use. Please read on, follow me by clicking the follow button above, and don't fail to share this article when you're done reading.There are majorly 2 types of cooking salts; iodized salt and non-iodized salt. Iodized salts are those type of salts that are mixed with a minute amount of iodine, while non-iodized salts are the opposite, i.e, they have no iodine. It is the non-iodized salts that are poisonous and are not supposed to be consumed, because lack of iodine in one's body causes the following; 1)mental retardation, 2)dwarfism and cretinism, 3)kidneys stones, 4)gall bladder stones, 5)arthritis, 6)rheumatism, 7)gout, and 8)harms the thyroid. Therefore, it's important that you stop using non-iodized salt to cook your food if you don't want any of the 8 diseases above. The human body doesn't produce iodine which is a very important element, and so, it's necessary that we always eat foods that contain iodine, of which salt is a perfect example. Also, salts containing aluminum hydroxide are also poisonous, because aluminum which is a metal, deposits in the brain and could over time cause Aizheimer's disease. It's important that you make sure that the salt you're buying is an iodized salt, because as I've said, using a non-iodized salt to cook your food means you are poisoning yourself.
