“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”
Salt is something that humans have always consumed as part of a healthy diet. Unfortunately, claims that it contributes to heart disease and increases blood pressure have left many people afraid to use salt. While it’s true that too much sodium (like too much of anything) can lead to adverse health effects, it’s inaccurate to think of salt as something that’s “bad for us”. The truth is that salt is essential to life, and our bodies need a constant supply of it. Most salt that people use is of very poor quality and is certainly not the best representation of all that salt has to offer. Instead of being wary of using salt, I think we have more to gain by beginning to use quality salt in a way that contributes to our health.
