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.

...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 won’t contract, blood won’t circulate, food won’t digest, and the heart won’t beat. Without sufficient sodium, a person’s 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 Storgest M.D.
...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
"...The last 5 years have also seen two studies published--the latest this past March in The Lancet--suggesting that low-salt diets can increase mortality..."
Salt Institute -Salt and Health
"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.  Here’s 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 stroke." (1985)
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 NHLBI’s 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   2(1998)
6.   A health outcomes study in Finland, reported to the American Heart Association that no health benefits could be identified and concluded “…our 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 mortality." (1999)
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)"

"...Salt -For years, salt has been linked to high blood pressure and heart disease. But recent research indicates the link may not be as solid as once thought."
Salt water mist better for cystic fibrosis: study
"Mists of inhaled salt water can reduce the pus and infection that fills the airways of cystic fibrosis sufferers, although side effects include a nasty coughing fit and a harsh taste.
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 function and, in some cases, produced less absenteeism from school or work"

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"
Job 6:6 - Can that which is unsavoury be 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 be lacking from your meat offering:  with all your offerings [of food] you shall offer salt.
