More on Salt Consumption

A new study from Europe sheds more light on the hazards of not consuming enough salt. An eight year study came up with this conclusion: "the less salt the participants ate, the more likely they would die from heart disease." That certainly goes against the advice of the American Heart Association, the American Medical Association, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Apparently, low salt users have a 56% greater risk of heart disease than heavy salt users. So, all the fuss over excess salt consumption is just another load of CWOPO.

So we now know that a lowered salt intake is positively associated with an increase in cardiovascular disease mortality, as well as insulin resistance.
