Seriously, this sounds like a fairytale but it's not!

The lake gets its name from natron, a natural compound that's mainly made of sodium carbonate and some baking soda.

When animals swim through it, they eventually become calcified, effectively turning to stone!

We've previously mentioned that despite all the information out there, Americans are still eating too much salt!

And it's not always our fault!

Most of our sodium comes from restaurants and processed foods, so we don't even know how much salt we're eating.

Well, thankfully some restaurants are trying to save us from ourselves. Mainly Boston Market!
