Salt is bad for you!


Or is it?

Now I'm confused.

That's OK...

Most of us have been convinced that salt consumption is something that must be restricted at all costs.

Too much salt increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, damages the kidneys and will lead to early death.

That's scary!

But what is the truth?

Have we been told a lie?

It always.

On this episode of Life By Design we talk about salt.

Here Is What We Covered

  • Using research done on "sick people" is not entirely applicable to healthy people.

  • What is the purpose of sodium in our body?
  • How much salt is the right amount of salt?
  • Who should restrict their salt intake?
