“Let there be work, bread, water, and salt for all.” — Nelson Mandela Salt: without it, food can seem tasteless. It is the reason sea water burns our eyes and skin. Some people enjoy salt water baths. Is it good for us? Is it not? Do we really know? In modern medicine, we tend to have a generally negative feeling about sodium, the element found in salt. Excessive sodium intake is linked to water retention, and it is also a risk factor for high blood pressure.

We report the in situ synthesis of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles on 1–3 layers of colloidal collagen-graphene composites. Varying calcium and phosphate: graphene ratio two different composites were synthesized. Crystallite size, particle size and degree of crystallinity of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles changes with a change in graphene concentration. Transmission electron microscopy shows that these graphene composites change shape from spherical to elongated needle-like structures because of the varying nitrogen content in collagen-graphene. Fourier-transform Infrared Spectroscopy peaks suggests an interaction between...
