Lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic are the most important heavy metals which may cause health risks following consumption of contaminated foods. Table salt is one the mostly used food additive with unique place in food consumption. Although purified table salt is expected to have lower level of contamination, some Iranians still prefer to use rock salt. Use of rock salt for food purposes has been banned by Iranian health authorities. In this study, heavy metal contamination of table salt… 
Evaluation of Heavy Metals Contamination of Unrefined and Refined Table Salt
Edible salt is the most used food additive worldwide. Therefore, any contamination of table salt could be considered as a health hazard to the consumers. The present study goal is to determine the
Content of toxic and essential metals in recrystallized and washed table salt in Shiraz, Iran
TLDR
The level of essential and non-essential heavy metals in the table salt refined with recrystallization and washing methods in Iran were lower than the permitted maximum for human consumption as prescribed by Codex and Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran.
Assessment of heavy metal content in refined and unrefined salts obtained from Urmia, Iran
Abstract A heavy metal is any relatively dense metal that may be potentially toxic in a variety of foods. Heavy metals pollute and contaminate foods. These metals are usually toxic to human body.
Determination of mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium and chromium in salt and water of Maharloo Lake, Iran, in different seasons
Background and purpose: Today, environmental pollutions are of the most important issues and hazardous in food safety around the world. Given the importance of salt and water in dietary, and
Determination of Heavy Metal Levels in Edible Salt
Background: Edible salt is the most commonly used food additive worldwide. Therefore, any contamination of table salt could be a health hazard. Objectives: The present study aimed to determine the
Determination Of Heavy Metals (Pb, Cd And Hg) In Crude And Refined Edible Salt At Production Level In Cameroon-A Risk Assessment
Edible salt is the most commonly used for iodization worldwide. Therefore, any contamination of processed iodized salt could be a health hazard. The present study aimed to determine the levels of

Hazards of heavy metal contamination.
TLDR
Recent data indicate that adverse health effects of cadmium exposure may occur at lower exposure levels than previously anticipated, primarily in the form of kidney damage but possibly also bone effects and fractures, and measures should be taken to reduce cadmiam exposure in the general population in order to minimize the risk of adverse health results.
Determination of cadmium, copper, and lead in sodium chloride food salts by flame atomic absorption spectroscopy.
TLDR
A method for determination of Cd, Cu, and Pb in sodium chloride food salt samples has been developed using 4-methyl-2-pentanone of the complexes formed with ammonium pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate and further analysis by flame atomic absorption spectroscopy.
Trace Heavy Metal Levels of Some Bouillon Cubes, and Food Condiments Readily Consumed in Nigeria
The Fe, Zn, Pb and Cd contents of bouillon cubes and other food condiments readily consumed in Nigeria were determined by atomic absorption spectrometry after acid digestion with 2:1 HNO /HClO .The 3
Lead and other metals distribution in local cooking salt from the Fofi salt- spring in Akwana, Middle Benue Trough, Nigeria.
TLDR
Lead was found to be enriched in LCS by factor exceeding 200 times compared to the other salts, and its effects on the inhabitants of the village are considered.
Levels of lead in mineral salt commercial mixtures for beef cattle.
TLDR
Of the 60 analyzed samples, 21 had values greater than 30 ppm (range less 1.6 to 460 ppm), which is the maximum concentration recommended, showing the necessity for careful industrial monitoring.
Toxicological evaluation of some Malaysian locally processed raw food products.
TLDR
Several food extracts showed cytotoxic effect but did not cause DNA damage against Chang liver cells, while salt was found as the main additive and arsenic was present in every sample, which could be the probable cause of the toxicity effects observed.
Sustainability of a well-monitored salt iodization program in Iran: Marked reduction in goiter prevalence and eventual normalization of urinary iodine concentrations without alteration in iodine content of salt
TLDR
After 7 yr of optimized iodized-salt supplementation in Iran, adequate UIC values and marked reduction in goiter rate have been achieved.

TLDR
The results show that it is important to monitor water quality, especially at the beginning of the spring flood period, when road salt and other contaminant levels are markedly high in urban streams, and significant positive correlation between NaCl and dissolved zinc in stream water was observed.
