Most people are taught to get less salt to be healthy, but for most cases *more* is likely safer.


Big thanks to Dr. James DiNicolantonio (@DrJamesDinic) for his very thorough, eye opening book: "The Salt Fix" :

Salt doesn't get too much attention nowadays as most people are taught that a low sodium diet is always going to be better than a high sodium diet, and that's all there is to it. However, the low salt advice that has become conventional wisdom doesn't pan out for several reasons.

If you're interested in the history surrounding salt, check out Mark Kurlansky's "Salt: A World History" :

★I plan to do more coverage on this topic soon. There's still a lot to be said about Salt, as far as how bodily systems react to having more or less salt and how other factors like potassium intake come into play. (You may have noticed in the portion where I talked about South Korean dietary trends, heart health increased with more Sodium *and* more [or ample] Potassium)
