I don't add it to my food except for on eggs and corn. There is so much sodium in processed foods, even the ones that claim low salt.

Raw salt is healthy. It has 80 minerals and oligoelements our body needs. But the salt we/they add to our food is sth chemically processed (one of the most toxic additives is used -E535, ferrocyanide sodium), that lost most of the its good parts and acquired harmful components.

It is so important to read labels. It is unbelievable the amount of sodium added to our food,in the manufacturing process.Combine this the amount in fast foods and one can see that this addiction,starts at an early age,and is extremely difficult to beat.Fresh is definitely best and table salt should be removed from the table.
