What's up with all the saving lives thing lately? Last I heard we were running out of planet, not people.

ancient salt beds below the North Coast that have formed layers of up to two-hundred feet thick and extend 2-3 miles out into Lake Erie.

Just sayin'

Idiots.  a low salt diet has been shown to make ZERO difference in health.
specifically:  low-salt diet was found to lower blood pressure by...... ONE POINT

120/80   -->  119/79 and your food all sucks forever.

If salt was bad, farmers would not put a salt lick out for their livestock.
if salt was bad, people who lived near the ocean would have a shorter average life span.

The only reason to lower salt intake is if you have hypertension.  In this case, a low-salt diet helps.  Any doctor or study that tells you otherwise is living in the 1980's.

"News outlets, including the USA Today, explained that, according to the study, the quarter of American kids who eat the most sodium are twice to three times as likely to develop high blood pressure as the quarter who eat the least. The take-home message from these stories is clear: kids need to cut down on salt or they will suffer serious health consequences.
It's a compelling argument.

Problem is, it may be wrong.

The study that these articles reference, which was published by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), did not actually find a statistically significant association between salt intake and blood pressure in kids."

What a load of codswallop. Here are two of many studies returned by a Google search that show a link between excessive salt consumption and hypertension.
