I agree that sugar intake in America is a much bigger and much more negative issue than salt intake.

Everything has high fructose corn syrup in these days.

RE: Huh? Low-salt diet ups risk of fatal heart attack?
Yes, can't win for loosing. Or gaining weight I should say. There is no good food that is processed because of sodium and or corn syrup. It frustrates me! I try hard to make salt and suger free food but this weekend I was off my diet. I also have had cheeseburger lately and I NEVER eat food like that. My blood pressure was 160/76 this morn. My top number gets high. My weight goes up and i feel tired and sluggish when I eat this way. I love pesto and pasta. I need to remind myself of the benefits for me to avoid those foods. I have a weight goal to reach July 4 and I will not get there if I keep this up. However, a simple cleanse helps. A smoothie of almond milk, fresh blueberries, vegan protein powder super food, Hemp protein powder, a few strawberries, even pineapple is ok and spinach and 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar. This is a good breakfast along with my vitamins. When I behave, my b/p is 117/72 or so. No meds. I don't take meds except for dry eye, eye drops. Most People still think beef and chicken are necessary for good health and they are not.

Hogwash. It's what's in the food, not how "natural" it is that counts.

City tap water with chlorine is much better for you than most "natural" water, even before industrialization, overpopulation, and pollution.

Cooked meat is better for you than raw meat in most cases.

Many vegetables, such as beans may be toxic if not cooked enough.

Hemlock, nicotine, caffeine, salt, crude oil, animal fat, and opium are "all natural."

"Free range" pork is probably going to have trichinosis.

Lots of people got deficiency diseases from eating too much "natural" food like corn, wheat, and milk before they started supplementing bread with vitamins, milk with vitamin D, and lots of other nutrients.

Yes, some processed food may be unhealthy because it's got too much of the wrong stuff and not enough of the right stuff. You can get just as unhealthy food by going "all natural." Also, the "all natural" food supporters are usually talking about carefully chosen and expensive foods. For those of us without the time or money, you can probably do better with processed foods.

Yes, if you're living on cola, supersized fast food burger meals, and bacon, you're probably not getting good nutrition. You can also get poor nutrition if you're eating nothing but all natural pork rinds and fresh homemade raw milk ice cream. Eating an all vegetarian diet is also very unhealthy unless you use extreme care to get the right nutrients.

We're still enormously healthier than people back in the days when they ate "natural" foods.

RE: Huh? Low-salt diet ups risk of fatal heart attack?
The advice that we need to eat less salt is generic and like most generic advice often wrong.

Not everybody is salt-sensitive in regards to their blood pressure.

If you exercise vigorously or perform hard manual labor in the summer where I live -- Austin, Texas -- you could be in trouble without an adequate salt intake.

A year or two ago an otherwise healthy young athlete was on a marathon canoe trip and drank plenty of water, or perhaps too much. He did nothing to maintain his electrolytes and flushed the salt out of his bloodstream and died. http://www.kxan.com/news/local/austin/dr...canoe-race
