Salt We do not know man first began to use salt, but we do know that it has been used in many different ways throughout history. Historical evidence shows that people who lived over 3,000 years ago ate salted fish. Thousands of years ago in Egypt, salt was used to preserve the dead. In Roman Empire, one of the most important roads was the one that carried salt from the salt mines to Rome. The guards received their pay in salt, hence the English word, salary. In the early days in the United States, salt was very scarce. So, the storekeeper then was very careful with his salt. As he poured out salt for a customer, he did not like anyone to walk across the floor of the store. The walking might shake the floor and could cause the salt to “settle” and as a result the storekeeper world have to add a little more salt to the amount he had already poured out. In the modern world salt has many uses beyond the dining table. It is used in the making of glass and airplane parts, in the growing of crops, and in killing weeds. It is also used to make water soft, to melt ice on roads and highways, to make soap, and to fix colors in cloth. Salt helps to relieve itching when it is rubbed on mosquito or insect bites. Salt can be obtained in various ways besides being taken from mines underground. Evaporation of salt water from the ocean or salt water likes is one of the more common processes for manufacturing salt. In Australia it can even be taken from a “salt bush”. Yet, however it is obtained, salt will continue to play an important role in the lives of the people everywhere.
