Salt Wars

What to believe about salt?

I wrote at least one essay (see Mainely Tipping Points essays) on the salt wars.

Anyway, the potassium and salt ratio is important.  I eat a lot of salt, so if I get leg cramps, I take a potassium pill.  Salt washes potassium out of one’s system.

Salt is crucial for health in all kinds of ways–see the essay I wrote

And, here is a very recent piece you might want to read from Dr. Mercola:
