Himalayan salt doesn't come from the Himalayas. It's mined deep inside the mountains of Pakistan at the Khewra Salt Mine. The pink rocks are turned into table salt, lamps, and statues, sold at a premium in Western countries. But despite pink salt's growing popularity abroad, Pakistan, historically, has seen little of the profits.

  • I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking group called dark web, they are really good at what they are doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying . Few days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5,000. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life with my Family. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $90,000 without any stress of being caught. I don’t know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. email Mr Rick via DM now becuse ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them. now.x

  • I use pink "Himalayan" salt because it tastes better, not for health benefits. It's one of the last spices left for me to use, due to severe food allergies. It's way better than standard table salt and a little better than sea salt, and is worth paying more for the flavor because at this point it's an ingredient in every meal I eat. It also helps keep my blood pressure in a normal range because for some reason I have low blood pressure in general... was quite the irony when my neurologist said, "So I don't think I've ever told a patient this but you could actually use more salt in your diet."

  • Rock Salt is used very very less in eating....for medicinal use it is not proven and every salt is used and has similar effect. Western countries buy from India instead of Pokistan because they dont want to trade with Pokistan and do not want to get in touch directly to a terrorist nation......India is already dealing with it.
