Recent US lab report reveals that premium brands of processed iodised salt sold in India allegedly contain alarming levels of carcinogenic and harmful components like potassium ferrocyanide. the test by American West Analytical Laboratories has revealed that potassium ferrocyanide levels are an alarmingly high in Refined Salt at 4.71 mg/kg, at 1.85 mg/kg in leading premium salt brand and 1.90 mg/kg in another leading Salt brand.
Nowhere in the world is potassium ferrocyanide ,a deadly poison is permitted for use in the edible salt industry or for that matter in any other food items.
Leading companies in the edible salt manufacturing industry simply repackage industrial waste laden with hazardous chemicals like iodine and cyanide and market it as packaged edible salt, making people vulnerable to diseases like cancer, hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, impotence, obesity, kidney failures etc. poisonous cyanide compounds are freely used by leading salt manufacturers in India, while iodine, which is already present in natural salt, is artificially added, virtually rendering the salt a poison.
