FACT: Salt is ESSENTIAL to life itself, and is
actually BENEFICIAL and NECESSARY for great health. Low salt levels in your body
helps to create a perfect environment for disease.
Look at the Salt evidence. Evidence-based health
information is far different than what we are traditionally taught. Without salt we die. The truth of the matter is that the only people that
have issues with salt (salt sensitivity) are those who have a definate lack of essential
minerals and advanced disease in their bodies.
|IT'S NOT TRUE, SALT IS GOOD FOR YOU!
...Most people in our day and age think that salt is bad for your health. However, in
truth, salt is very healthy. Without the proper amount of salt in your body,
muscles wont contract, blood wont circulate, food wont digest, and the
heart wont beat. Without sufficient sodium, a persons senses would be dulled
and their nerves would not function. Current scientific research reveals that there are
actually very few salt-related health problems. A healthy, active lifestyle demands a
sufficient salt intake. "The contention that our body can function on no salt at all
or on a restricted ration of salt causes more problems than it solves," says Dr. Alan
...A study performed in Rotterdam, Netherlands, with 100 men and women between the ages of
55 and 75 with mild to moderate hyper tension showed that when common table salt
(98%NaCl) was replaced with whole mineral salt naturally high in magnesium and potassium,
a reduction in blood pressure equivalent to that obtained with blood pressure reducing
drugs was achieved..."
|BIOMEDICINE: The (Political) Science of Salt
Three decades of controversy over the putative benefits of salt reduction show how the
demands of good science clash with the pressures of public health policy

in The Lancet--suggesting that low-salt diets can increase

"Of the first twelve health outcomes studies of sodium reduction,
only a single study has found an association in the general population between low-sodium
diets and reduced incidence of cardiovascular events like stroke or heart attack. Several have identifed health risks of low-salt
diets. Heres what scientists have found:
1. A ten-year study of nearly 8,000 Hawaiian Japanese men concluded:
"No relation was found between salt intake and the incidence of
2. An eight-year study
of a New York City hypertensive population stratified for sodium intake levels found those on low-salt diets
had more than four times as many heart attacks as those on normal-sodium diets
the exact opposite of what the salt hypothesis would have predicted. (1995)
3. An analysis by
NHLBIs Dr. Cutler of the first six years data from the MRFIT database
documented no health outcomes benefits of lower-sodium diets. (1997)
4. A ten-year
follow-up study to the huge Scottish Heart Health Study found no improved
health outcomes for those on low-salt diets. (1997)
5. An analysis of the
health outcomes over twenty years from those in the massive US National Health and
Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I) documented a 20% greater
incidence of heart attacks among those on low-salt diets compared to normal-salt
diets ( 1
6. A health outcomes
study in Finland, reported to the American Heart Association that no health benefits could
be identified and concluded
results do not support the recommendations for entire populations to reduce dietary sodium
intake to prevent coronary heart disease. (1998)
7. A further analysis
of the MRFIT database, this time using fourteen years data, confirmed no improved
health benefit from low-sodium diets. Its
author conceded that there is "no relationship observed between dietary sodium and
8. A study of
Americans found that less
sodium-dense diets did reduce the cardiovascular mortality of one population sub-set,
overweight men the article reporting the findings did not explain why this
obese group actually consumed less sodium than normal-weight individuals in the study. (1999)
9. A Finnish study
reported an increase in cardiovascular events for obese men (but not women or
normal-weight individuals of either gender) the article, however, failed to adjust
for potassium intake levels which many researchers consider a key associated variable. (2001)
10. In September,
2002, the prestigous Cochrane
Collaboration produced the latest and highest-quality meta-analysis of clinical
trials. It was published in the British Medical Journal
and confirmed earlier meta-analyses' conclusions that significant salt reduction would
lead to very small blood pressure changes in sensitive populations and no health benefits. (2002)
11. In June 2003, Dutch researchers using a massive database in Rotterdam
concluded that "variations in dietary soidum and potassium within the range commonly
observed in Westernized societies have no material effect on the ocurrence of
cardiovascular events and mortality at old age." (2003)
12. In July 2004, the first "outcomes" study identifying a
population risk appeared in Stroke magazine. Researchers found that
in a Japanese population, "low" sodium intakes (about 20% above Americans'
average intake) had one-third the incidence of fatal strokes of those consuming twice as
much sodium as Americans. (2004)"

But recent research indicates the link may not be as solid as once thought."

That's the conclusion of two studies published in The New England Journal of Medicine and
released on Wednesday.
They found that inhaling a mist with a salt content of 7 or 9 percent improved lung

Do you think that the doctors and the medical
establishment as led by the pharmaceutical drug cartels WILL TELL YOU to eat salt?
Who is it who tells you to eat salt?
|Mark 9:50 -Salt is good [beneficial]:
but if the salt has lost its saltiness, wherewith will you season it? Have salt
in yourselves, and have peace [health] one with another.
good - also means "beneficial"
peace - in the original language also meant "health"

eaten without salt?
|Leviticus 2:13 - And every oblation of
your meat shall you season with salt neither shall you allow the salt of the
covenant....to be lacking from your meat offering: with all your offerings [of
food] you shall offer salt.
