Salt in daily life
Without sodium in our diets, our cells wouldn’t be able to function properly and we would suffer nausea and vomiting, fatigue, headaches, weakness, spasms, seizures, or even coma. But salt is easy to consume. It enables our sense of taste and brings out other food’s natural flavours.
Salt is also used to make saline solutions for intravenous therapy drips, cleaning contact lenses or new piercings, and nasal irrigation. Plus the wintry roads we face in February are much safer with salt helping to melt the ice.
