Low Salt Considered Harmful

I already knew some of the harm salt reduction can cause, but this is a great post laying it all out in detail, using the relevant studies and science and history. Just a tiny taste of it:

The lowest sodium intakes — the 1500 mg/day amount some are saying we should all be eating — were associated with an 80% higher risk of cardiovascular disease compared with those consuming the highest salt diets. The lowest salt intakes were associated with a 24% higher risk of all-cause mortality.
