To: Tolerance Sucks Rocks
It's been a while since I've dug into the studies, but when last I did the studies available at the time showed that if you had certain defects you were indeed more likely to die of certain specific things related to blood pressure with a high salt diet. ... the other half of that was that you were more likely to die of a range of different things with a low salt diet. So yes, if you have hypertension having a high salt diet on top of that makes things much much worse. But if you don't have hypertension, then the salt was harmless or beneficial. I don't know if the studies still support that, but the odd careful wording makes me suspect that it does.

There is no difference in health benefits

Both are over 90% NaCl

Sea salt may taste better...i think it does....i use Maldon sea salt flakes
Sea salt may have more impurities like magnesium
