   Probly so. Personally I'd go for "earth salt" - if you can stomach the
subliterate label offering every ignorant reason imaginable why it's better
except the obvious one: that it contains fractionally less human sewage &
dinosaur shite, industrial waste and radioactive fallout than does new-age
"sea salt."


also recalls the comment in some aquaculture magazine - yet another thing  
I find fascinating that I'll never make a living at - about how "one was
always pouring blue dye into the salt ponds to make them evaporate faster."
