P.J. Sullivan This book claims that unrefined salt is good for you and refined salt is bad. In fact, any kind of salt is toxic to the human body. The refining is not the problem. The problem is the inorganic nature of salt. The human body is not capable of digesting rocks. We are plant eaters, not rock eaters. Salt is nothing but rocks, no more digestible than any other kind of rock. The trace minerals in salt are indigestible. There are trace minerals in sand too, but would you eat sand to boost your calcium levels?

This book claims that sea salt boosts immune function. True, because it is so toxic. If you ingest poison you will get an immune reaction. This book claims that salt helps blood pressure. Maybe, if it is extremely low, because salt has a long-established link to hypertension. This book claims that salt helps thyroid disorders. Not true. It is the iodine artificially added to salt that helps the thyroid. This book claims that salt helps headaches. Absolutely not true. Salt causes headaches, according to Dr. Max Gerson and many other sources. All the health claims for salt are bogus. Salt can do nothing but harm. It has no place in human nutrition. Get your trace minerals from natural foods. They are rich in organic, bio-available minerals, including sodium and chloride.

Salt is used as an emetic because it induces vomiting. As a disinfectant because it is toxic to germs. As a de-worming agent because it is toxic to worms. As an insecticide because it is toxic to insects. As a food preservative because it is toxic to bacteria that cause foods to spoil.

P.J. Sullivan According to Herbert M. Shelton N.D.:

“The power to assimilate crude inorganic matter as it is found in the soil, and convert it into living protoplasm and other organic substances, or to use such substances in performing physiological function, does not belong to the animal organism. It is the office of plant life or vegetation to convert the primary elements from their crude inorganic state into the organic state. This conversion cannot be accomplished by any synthetic process known to the laboratory.

After the plant has raised the crude inorganic matter of the soil into plant protoplasm, the animal may take these and raise them to a still higher plane—that of animal protoplasm. But the animal cannot do the work of the plant. He must get his food either directly or indirectly from the plant kingdom. That is, the animal must either eat the plant or its fruits, or he must eat the animal that has eaten the plant. Food must be in the organic form. Air and water form the only exceptions to this rule. ”
