The doctor crowd has succeeded in scaring the American people away from salt. Heart doctors deserve much of the blame.

A health study reported in JAMA 11:305(17):1777-1785 found that people who ate the least amount of salt were the most likely to die from heart disease.

Hospitals don’t advertise that they use very high-priced salt water IVs that they call “saline solution.”

From AmJHypertens 01;14(7 Pt 1):653-659:

Restricting sodium (salt) intake causes insulin resistance (which leads to diabetes and heart disease). Restricting salt can promote diabetes and heart disease.

In fact, research studies have routinely found that sodium significantly improves insulin function. According to one study, “an abundant sodium intake may improve glucose tolerance and insulin resistance, especially in diabetic salt-sensitive, and/or medicated essential hypertensive subjects.”

My family and I do not use refined salt from the grocery store. We use sea salt, which contains 17 minerals.
