Salty advice

Salt is not bad for you. It is only the kind of salt that is bad for you. Humans cannot live without salt! In fact, the connections between salt and cardiovascular disease are only partially true for morbidly obese people. The former president of the American Society of Hypertension even says that for people who were not overweight, “the more salt you eat, the less likely you are to die.” The Lancet concluded that people “who eat lots of salt live longer than those who avoid it.” (In that study, 25% percent of people who consumed the lowest amount of salt also had a higher risk of death.) An eight-year study of hypertensives in New York shows that those on low-salt diets had over four times as many heart attacks compared to normal sodium intake. The bible requires offerings to be seasoned with salt and many societies have used salt for currency. The old expression “not worth his salt” comes from the slave trade in ancient Greece. IMO, take all low sodium advice with a health pinch of salt – just make it good ole unrefined sea salt and not the nasty processed junk that is chemically altered.
