The real answer is of course None.
Though I did find these answers to some various questions and am cutting and pasting them on here for your review. I can find evidence for both for and against the use of various salts. Ultimately, the decision as to whether you use salt or not to use any is up to you and the advise of your doctor, along with your personal tastes on things.
Here is the information cut and pasted as it was found on the internet, via googling:
Sea salt is not a healthier choice than table salt. From a chemical and nutritional standpoint, both are sodium chloride and you want to limit your sodium intake to 2300 mg (~1 tsp of table salt) or less to promote blood pressure control.
If you use kosher salt, which has larger crystals, you benefit because less salt "fits" in one teaspoon due to the larger crystal size. A teaspoon of kosher salt provides about 1900 mg sodium. Sea salt is available in this larger crystal form, also.
All the best,

Sea Salt is the best choice overall. Yes, Kosher Salt does have less sodium than sea salt but sea salt has less sodium than table salt and you do want to limit salt all together. Sea Salt retains all its trace minerals because the way it is harvested and this allows it to interact with the bodys cells.
Table Salt is processd and stripped of all the trace minerals and does not interact with our cells and can leave some attached to our organs such as our heart and kidneys. Dont take my word for it, look it up there are plenty of scholarly articles that say the same thing.
Reasearch shows any salt is better than no salt and people using Sea Salt do the best, on average, on blood pressure tests.
Regular table salt, is highly refined and has additives, chemicals, and preservatives. Many of the preservatives are not required to be listed on the container and include ferrocyanide, magnesium carbonate, and aluminum hydroxide.
High levels of aluminum are believed to be a major factor in the prevalence of Alzheimer's in the U.S.
Standard salt undergoes a refining process that strips it of 60 trace minerals, leaving a nutrient-free flavoring. Manufacturers put this refined salt into almost every prepared food, and it's even present in municipal water sources.
True Sea Salt matches the mineral level of the blood nearly exactly.
Avoiding salt is not healthy and too much Sodium Chloride (regular salt) is unhealthy. Sea Salt in a Macrobiotic diet is very healthy according to studies.
Hope this helps to clear up some confusion.
