    This thread gave me a hankering for salt so I ate an entire box of Diamond Kosher last night.

    It has taken awhile but Michael Greger M.D. has made a 5 minute video on how bad salt is. He says that it kills over 1,000 Americans per day!

    Salt has both its benefits and ill effects.It helps you stay hydrated and contains powerful electrolytes like magnesium.Consuming too much salt in your food can raise the blood pressure.There is pretty much good and bad in everything.

    If I may add, too much intake of salt can increase your risk of stroke, kidney disease and heart failure.

    Limit to 2gms of salt intake per day. It's not healthy for the body and I agree with Christal above. It can cause these medical conditions and can retain water in the body.
