I am PISSED.

I hadn’t meant to make most of my posts about food, but the clean living fat man inside me cannot be silenced. I pinky promise all my posts won’t be like this. I forget why I was looking into salt in general (random, I know, but I love to learn as much as I can about whatever is in my world) and as soon as I started my research, I immediately regretted it. Same deal as lemons – what in the hell can be in there aside from salt?!

Let’s have a look-see at the back of my salt container:

Salt – Seems legit.

Potassium iodide – Overloads the thyroid to help block the absorption of radioactive iodine. Bonus!

Dextrose – Sugar… IN SALT!!!!! ….why??

Sodium bicarbonate – Baking soda. Sounds harmless, depending on what’s actually in it. Some brands don’t sell you pure baking soda (shock!)…
