we have some flavored salts we use a lot.  they are very good with what we normally eat. 

it was almost universally believed that salt is bad for you.  but you know how that goes.  anyone looked at any of these studies?

I think it is almost a given that to much salt leads to high blood pressure, also known as the slow silent killer.

yeah, but wasn't it also a given for a while that eating eggs is bad for you and would increase your cholesterol?

People aged 51 and older, blacks and anyone with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease should consider going down to 1,500 mg per day, many experts say.

Whats the deal hereAre black people more prone to high blood pressure or something?

Moderation is the key.  Everyone eats salt.  It's necessary.  Just try to avoid prepared foods that are loaded up with sodium and don't go nuts shaking salt on everything.  Beyond that it's not worth getting too worked up over unless you have especially high blood pressure.

Don't know but will tell you from personal experience if that don't eat enough salt..... will cramp in the summer.  In fact, the body will crave pickle juice and will drink half a jar of it.

It's an electrolyte and need it.

But on the flip side....... it's hygroscopic (absorbs garbage) which I cannot imagine being good for the body.

Either way, it is virtually IMPOSSIBLE to eat less than the recommended 2400 milligrams a day.  I tracked my food for a month on an online calculator and am a pretty good eater.  It's IMPOSSIBLE.

Like Depeche said........ it's like everything else.... "moderation"

But if listen to the 2400 milligram guidelines...... will be IMPOSSIBLE to hit that.  Even if you make your own food.  If you leave the house and eat...... LESS THAN ZERO CHANCE.

Salt is one of the primary taste sensories...... I think it is there for a reason.

Do you realize that if you stick out your tongue and wave an imaginary salt shaker in your hand over your head, you can actually taste salt?

too much salt will cause you to retain a lot of water weight and you'll look "puffy"

also, high blood pressure and other problems can occur from too much.....i'd be careful

1 Spicy Chicken Wing from Church's Chicken = 1040 milligrams of sodium

2 ounces of deli ham = 2400 milligrams of sodium

Done for the day on Sodium and that was just a snack.

McDonalds Big Mac or Quarter Pounder with Cheese both > 1000 milligrams

Surprisingly, a medium french fry is only 200 milligrams.

The tableside salt doesn't add up as fast as the internal ingredient salt.

Okay found 2 chicken enchiladas with rice and beans from Baja Fresh Grill.  I bet this is about half the size and content of a normal Mexican restaurant and doesn't include the chips and salsa.

Coming in at................ 2,340 milligrams

Basically can't leave the house if concerned about sodium.  And if open a can you are probably even more screwed.

One cup of Hormal Turkey Chili in a can = 1,200 milligrams.
