As readers here know, I'm a salt advocate, if only because I believe America is hoodwinked into fearing all kinds of natural foods for no good reason. I admit my pleas to have you salt your food as you wish so long as you avoid processed and fast food are based on nothing more than common sense, intuition and personal experience. I don't do randomized clinical trials. Here, doing something that traditional journalism is so good at, a NYTimes article by John Tierney shows that there is no evidence to say lowering salt in our diet, helps us or hurts us. It might even make us fatter! Again, eat natural foods that you cook yourself and stop listening to the agenda-pushing health police. See also my recent salt rant.
