Pass the Salt

Pass the Salt

Only 3.5 percent of Earth’s water is fresh water. Most of the salt in the ocean is the same kind of salt we put on our food: sodium chloride. The saltiest water in the world is found in Antarctica in a small lake named Don Juan Pond. Did you know that boiling seawater does not make it safe to drink? The issue with seawater isn’t sterilization, which boiling would fix, but salt content. As seawater boils, it evaporates, leaving the salt behind. You’re actually making seawater saltier by boiling it.
