Are You Ingesting Poison With Celtic Sea Salt?

Why is Celtic Sea Salt gray?

Could it be that the pollution in the ocean is absorbed by the clear white crystals? We know this is the case with fish and other organisms that live in our oceans. Why wouldn't it be true of salt?

In addition to undisclosed volumes of toxic waste being dumped in our oceans, an estimated 60 million gallons of oil enter the oceans every year (according to the Smithsonian Institute); approximately 37 million from tanker accidents and the rest from a variety of man-made and natural occurring events.

But more alarming are the vast amounts of invisible chemical contaminates such as pesticides like DDT, and many other toxic chemicals that wash into our rivers and then into the ocean. Even the melting glaciers contribute to this toxic "cocktail", infected by the atmosphere and now adding to our global crisis.

While it is true that some oceans are cleaner than others, the coastline of France, where Celtic salt is harvested, is hardly pristine.

Celtic sea salt harvesters wash the salt in fresh sea water to rinse away impurities, but what about the impurities locked inside the crystals which are un-identified and not labeled? Celtic sea salt is not refined, so those impurities are delivered to the consumer without any safety labeling. The same is true of fresh fish, but does that make it right? [See Jean-Michel Cousteau's "Oceans Futures Society" for more information.]

Another health concern about celtic sea salt is the lack of iodine. According to Wikipedia:

"...sea salt generally lacks high concentrations of iodine, an element essential for human heath... Iodized forms of sea salt are now marketed to address this concern. However, unrefined sea salt contains many minerals that regular iodized table salt does not contain, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, sulfate, and traces of others (including heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and cadmium, as well as stronium)."

Again, the problem is that as consumers, we cannot be certain about the ratio and quantities of minerals, which is a critical component of the overall health benefit.

Historically, before man polluted the oceans, salt water was very close to the composition of the human body. The ratio of water, minerals and trace elements were reflected in our bodies' optimal condition, but with the gradual stripping away of minerals from the earth, and our reliance on packaged foods, our society now suffers from many illnesses and diseases that stem from the resulting imbalances.

An excellent example of this is mercury.

Our bodies require a small amount of mercury for optimum health but too much is lethal.

Or how about the chloride in "sodium chloride". "Clorox" illustrates exactly what happens with too much chloride (the same as chlorine); it becomes an acid, not so good for our health.

Even worse for our health are the heavy metals inherent in sea water. These elements are naturally occurring in sea salt but in very small amounts. Higher ingestion can cause terrible health consequences especially mercury which can only be removed by FAR Infared Saunas.

The only reliably healthy salt is Himalayan sea salt. Created by ancient oceans and protected by the Himalayan Mountains, Himalayan salt is a miracle salt in today's polluted landscape. Packed with the perfect ratio of minerals and trace elements, Himalayan salt also provides the body with easily absorbed minerals, unlike other mineral supplements.

Don't take a chance with your health. If you want healthy sea salt, try Miracle Salt. Experience the pure and natural Himalayan sea salt at Good health doesn't have to be expensive.
