What is Phosphate Salts?

Phosphate salts refers to many different combinations of the chemical phosphate with salts and minerals. People use them for medicine. Be careful not to confuse phosphate salts with substances such as organophosphates, or with tribasic sodium phosphates and tribasic potassium phosphates, which are very poisonous.
