The famous Dead Sea is a big salt lake that is bordering Jordan towards the east and the West Bank and Israel to the west. Dead Sea is also known as Salt Sea, The Sea of Death and Sea of Salt. It is a prominent tourist attraction of both, Jordan and Israel and holds special attraction for environmental scientists. The fridge magnet exhibited above displays a nice view of the Dead Sea and you can see the words "Palestinian Territory" written on it, along with a picture of the Palestinian flag, making it a fitting souvenir of the Salt Sea.
Why the Dead Sea is considered Dead
The Dead Sea is of special importance to scientists and other people across the globe because of the high levels of salt deposited in it. It has a salinity of 33.7% making it one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world. These conditions do not support the survival of any living organism; hence, the Dead Sea is devoid of any kind of life form in it, which is why it is known as the Dead Sea.
Healing Properties of the Dead Sea
Several ailing people visit the Sea of Salt every day to benefit from its wonderful healing properties. The humidity, sunshine, barometric pressure and temperature of the Dead Sea and the areas around it are perfect for treating people with psoriasis. In addition, patients of rhinosinusitis gain relief from the nasal irrigation done using the saline water of the Dead Sea and the mud lying on the seashore has curative properties for patients suffering from osteoarthritis.
