Summary
You might not suspect it, but salt -- the only rock that people eat -- has had a surprisingly dramatic impact on human history. It helped prehistoric people tame wild animals, spurred war and rebellion (such as Gandhi's march to protest British control of salt in India), and even changed the way we talk (salt is the root word for soldier, salad, and salary). -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
