    I'd read that if you heat it up, it ionizes the air, causing dust particles to fall to the ground instead of floating around, so you breathe in less dust, so that's why salt lamps are beneficial.

    Do a video about why regular salt has ground up glass in it and that it cuts your arteries and causes atherosclerosis😊 and maybe another video about why apartments are so expensive

    Pink salt can contain mass amount of lead by EU standards. Be careful, especially with young children.

    I worked two summers in France and I think the best sea salt flower from Bretagne naturaly dried by the sun heat is the best in the world.

    Would love to discover new salts from around the world.

    pink salt and sea salt have the entire periodic table of elements in them. google pink salt minerals for the scientific studies on it. table salt has 2 or 3 if iodine is added. therefore pink and sea salt are healthier. pink salt is only $3 a kg. type in how to salt and how to brine meat to cook/ preserve meat that way
