Unless you have certain genetic factors “harmful effects of excess sodium intake” is what is a myth.

Excess sodium intake has a high correlation to cardiovascular disease, according to every major medical research hospital.

Those, like Atkins, who preach yo-yo low carb diets, while ignoring the dangers of sodium, are pandering to our addiction to salt and doing a disservice to us all, to sell books and services.

No one, however, including Bloomberg, should dictate what we eat, or smoke. Caveat vorator.

Have read their "studies" they tend to start from an unproved hypothesis and then draw "inferences"

You follow their recommendations if you wish.

I had a MD who wanted me to cut back on salt. So I did. Started feeling lousy. Kept feeling lousy. Had chest pains, heavy heart beat, headaches and passed out. Finally went to a DO who actually knew something. He told me to quit trying to kill myself, salt was necessary. I started eating salt again.

Blood pressure is slightly below normal, no more chest pains. Still have headaches but much less.

Anything that recommends that "everyone should cut back on salt" is a big ol pile of obama.
