Due to its unique chemical properties, disrupting the osmotic balance and electrical conductivity of their cells, table salt could act as a defence against the Fendahl. The Fourth Doctor could kill Fendahleen by firing table salt out of a shotgun. The power of salt to ward off evil, then, entered into human folklore in the form of throwing salt over one's shoulder for good luck. (TV: Image of the Fendahl) The Hervoken were also similarly vulnerable to salt. (PROSE: Forever Autumn)
Around 6100 BC Osirans utilised salt-based spacecraft. At this time, Sekhmet was entombed in a spaceship made from trisilicate, which was "the hardest form of salt in the galaxy". In Earth "old wives' tales", salt was used to ward off "evil". (AUDIO: The Bride of Peladon)
Clyde Langer suggested that the Slitheen were allergic to the salt in his cold chip sandwich. Luke Smith noted that if the Slitheen were made mostly of water it would dehydrate them like slugs. However, that theory was debunked as salt was contained in the bread and water of the sandwich another Slitheen ate. It was soon realised that the Slitheen were calcium-based and allergic to vinegar.
