the reason for this is since the 1960 salt contains poisons
poisons which were not there prior to or around that date

do you remember the block of salt pre 1960

well since then additive poisonous additives have been added to salt that is why you are told to limit the salt intake

remove the additives = no poison

the additives make salt free running and are poison

sea or rock salt contain no additives and are safe to use in elevatate amounts as there are no poisons contained in them
