Is Salt Bad for Us?

Yesterday I wrote about trialling a paleolithic diet for a couple of weeks. On this diet, one has to eat very little salt. That isn’t too big of a deal for me since for many years I’ve used low salt due to having had hypertension.


But an article was forwarded to me recently regarding salt intake. It was written on June 12th of this year and I found it rather interesting as it says:

“…the evidence from studies published over the past two years actually suggests that restricting how much salt we eat can increase our likelihood of dying prematurely.”

Whoa! That would be a 360° turn around from what we have been told for so many years.

Read the article if you have a chance and let me know what you think. The author cites studies from the 1970’s and more recently.

Very interesting …
