        Mark,

        One of the key things about chemistry is that a Compound has totally
        different properties from the Elements it's made from.

        Table salt is nothing remotely like either Sodium or Chlorine.

        But Cadmium is a toxic metal however you look at it.

        All the same you are quite right that care and caution are all that's
        needed when using cadmium-bearing solders.
        Specifically:
        - good ventilation,
        - only occasional exposure,
        - careful washing, especially hands and face.
