The Importance of Salt

Salt what of it? Salt is all around us and is probably the most uses of any chemical in the world. We put it on our grocery list, we cook with it and add it at the table. It is a preservative of foods and has been used for preserving since man's beginnings.

Industry uses most of salt produced today. The chemical industry is the leader in salt use.

Salt has been used through out history for trading and even as money.

The veins,artery, and cells of the body are a sodium/potassium pump. Which means salt is very important to bodily functions.

The kind of salt we eat is different that the salt used in industry. Trace amounts of iodine are added to some table salts to help prevent goiter. There are many different grades of salt for consumption. Even regular grocery stores are carrying various brands of sea salt as well as the name brands that we all recognize such as

Many people have tried a salt free diet to lower their blood pressure and many restaurants have become concerned for there customers on salt free diet and have started lowering the amount of salt in their recipes.

Not many people really think very much about salt except to add it to the grocery lists. All the best restaurants know that the quality of salt is very important to the taste of their foods.

Not all salts are equal when it comes to nutritional value and all people who wish to increase their level of health would do well to really think about what kind of salt you put into your body.

Responsible Sexuality

There is much controversy concerning sexuality. Some people think it is okay to have sex with out commitment or love. Other people are more discerning in choosing a sexual partner.

There is little doubt that sex is what makes babies. There is little doubt that sex is a direct cause of abortion. People who cannot support children tend to be the ones who produce the most children. People who have abortions are just as irresponsible as people who cannot support their children.

Are there no limits of any kind that could be put into place?

Some people believe that by being selective in their sexual partner is a limit that they cannot bear. Birth Control is a limit and is widely available and ought to be available for people who do not want children. Many oral birth control products cause dangerous side effects so many people cannot take them, condoms break and diaphragms get left in the bathroom, and foams & creams are less effective and also cause allergic reactions.

What are we to do about this? Do we keep fighting back and forth about abortion? Do we put limits on people as to how many children they can have and after they have reached their limit have them submit to sterilization?

What is the responsible solution?

Abortion became legal in the USA when the Viet Nam war was winding down which shows a little bit about why abortion is legal now. Can't see the connection? War is a form of population control and so is abortion the war ended so abortion was made legal to help control the population.
