    It has arsenic, lead and mercury among other fun things in it, and people claim it's healthier than normal salt. A very small amount as they said in the video, but still, a fun fact to tell someone who buys it because "it has healthy minerals in it!"

    Pink salt is better for you for the simple fact that nothing is taken out, and nothing is added. It's a natural salt, so it's better.

    If this was in Japan they would look at sheen, salt content (lol), the pinkness, brightness, how symmetric the cube dimensions are, etc, etc...and than sell it for 100k per kilo at an auction. I guarantee it.

    It tastes a lot better than table salt, almost sweeter, and that is the trace minerals, trace minerals are what our body is searching for and our tongue is tuned into, it makes since we are attracted to the taste of the pink salt. This video is not giving the truth, they must sell the white table salt

    Want to do something more interesting than watch this video. Go get some salt out of your pantry, pour a little out and look at it with a magnifying glass. All of them will be square in shape. No matter how fine you break it up, always square. Due to the way Halite bonds are formed. Also salt is a crystal, due to crystaline structure and growth.
