Sea salt contaminated with plastic

sea-1377712_960_720Our oceans are increasingly polluted, so maybe it should be no surprise that researchers found microscopic plastic in 16 of 17 samples of sea salt from all around the world.  While they claim the small amounts of plastic shouldn’t affect human health, I’m not taking any chances.  We POTS patients consume more salt than others, so it may be best to choose alternate sources of salt, such as Real Salt (sourced from underground salt mines of Utah) or Himalayan salt. You can read the full study here.
