the absolute rule about salt is " salt is salt is salt" weather it it from land or sea. it is sodium. and sodium is sodium. don't use either on 99% of food. the 1% that makes the food palatable either. they are the same. they are sodium.
Regular table salt is NOT good and I would never use it.I do not add salt to my cooking but use a little sea salt occasionally.Salt is a no no when it comes to hypertension.Iodine can be found in many other sources if you look into it and it is not necessary to get it from salt.

Salt and its nutrients is something our bodies need but its the too much that causes the problem as with anything. Lets face it everything you buy has too much salt. Yes, I found that the sea salts products have as much or more that regualar too. Its the new hype for health gimic.
Well, it still has its natural minerals, but whether they are any big deal..I dunno. And supposedly because it is bigger, you'll use less. Comparing sodium levels on several brands, I saw very little difference..some sea salt was even higher than table salt.
Nothing tastes as good as HEALTHY feels!
Eat simple, live simple, want simple. Laugh big, love big, give big.

i switched to sea salt because it thought it was better for you. but i now know salt is salt. so i now use red pepper. i never add any salt to anything. it only takes a few weeks to get use to no salt.
