Does “Himalaya Salt” contain fluoride?

Yes. Although it is marketed in Europe and elsewhere as an alternative to fluoridated salt, “Himalaya Salt” may in fact contain even more fluoride than is present in artificially fluoridated salt. Recent analyses have shown fluoride content between 231 and 310 ppm. To view one analysis, click http://poisonfluoride.com/pfpc/html/analysis.html.
