I know salt is used to lower the melting point of water when it snows and there is ice and snow on walkways and roads. Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't it a neccesary in the human diet as well...
go to a search engine and search for "uses of salt" or something like that and you should be able to find a lot more uses.

Sodium Iodide is needed for the thyroid and is why table salt has sodium iodide in it. Not much is needed however so table salt is predominately Sodium chloride.

uses for NaCl

Salt is used as a mordant or fixer to make dyes more stable; in the days of artificial aniline dyes this use is no longer as important as it once was with natural organic dyes, but many home dyers even today add a cup if salt before dyeing.

Within the body, NaCl is the principal source of the chloride ion Cl- which is required for the formation of HCl hydrochloric acid, the principal component of stomach acid; without this acid, death from pernicious anemia results.
