Physiological function is used to ensure 30% of the resulting salt, the chemical industry spends 60% of the resulting salt, and about 10% is being spent for other purposes, including salting roads. One person in average spends 1.2 kilograms of salt. We can not imagine life without salt. There is a salt added to all meals in people daily life - and can not live without it.

Approximately half we add at home, in cooking process, and the left half is a natural part of the product itself. We need a certain amount of salt. The minimum daily dose of diet is 0.5 g sodium. This corresponds to about 1.5 g of sodium chloride - table salt. Usually with a mixed diet the body gets 5-20g of table salt a day, sometimes more. Humans in temperate climates without significant physical activities are enough with 5-7 g of table salt a day.
