Toxicity of certain table salts

In certain table salts (for human consumption) there are supposed to be dysprosium 
and thallium. These elements are reported to be very toxic. Do all table salts (e.g.
Himalayan salt) contain these elements, and should one avoid intake of those 
Thanks for any relevant information on this subject.

Hi there. This is quite a broad topic and probably best served by Googling the specific types of salt you’re interested in. Thanks.
