Salt served, as time went on, as an exchange of currency in Chinese territory, the Roman legionnaires received it as salary, the Greek used it as a sacred offering, the Egyptians noted its capacity of conservation and used it to momify bodies, and it will also become a purifier in the dawn of the Christian era.

Salt, found in food today, as lost its acclaim to make way to iodized, salt, heated and considered as a sneaky poison, so much it is concealed in all processed products.
