    Y'all know table salt is a hazard to our health. Well I got tired of eating bland food so thought I'd buy some seasalt.

    I looked at the ingredients and they put something in there called yellow prussiate of soda. WTF is that?

    So i go to Google and they take me to an article about something called sodium ferrocyanide. Turns out yellow prussiate of soda is what they call sodium ferrocyanide when they put it in food as an anti-caking agent. The article sas ferrocyanide is not especially poisonous. I'm checking out the word especially. But they don't say what they mean by that. You know anything that doesn't kill us right away is not "especially" toxic.

    Remember what info-moetry told us: salt doesn't grow. It accumulates. I don't know what ferrocyanide does but I know I'm not gonna eat it.

    wow, that's crazy.
    "because the cyanides are tightly bound to the metal, although it can react with acid or photodecompose to release hydrogen cyanide gas"

    so, can it react w/ the acid in our food?
    or will the cyanide gas release when the sun light hits it? wth?

    Hi river,
    I used iodine salt to avoid any illness and discomfort.
    It is great for health.
    Thanks for sharing this informative ferrocyanide with everyone.

    This is the reason people need to return to the kitchen and cook their own meals. Most of the fast food outlets tend the use the unhealthing things. As individuals we are responsible for our own health and that of our family. I have not eaten commercial bread since December 2011.
    The key is to cook our own meals and avoid as much as possible commercial warehouse food.
