Salt
We're all aware of the dangers of eating too much salt in our diet, but how much is too much? I personally think the current daily maximum limit of 6g is too high, as the body only needs about 3g a day, yet with all the hidden salt in precooked and takeaway foods it's not uncommon to consume 10g a day! Do you watch your salt intake or check how much is in your food?

I only add salt to home cooked chips which I have a couple of times a week, and it's not proper salt, it's that Lo-salt alternative which tastes just as nice. If I'm making a soup I'll only add a slight bit because you can always add to taste later. When shopping I always read the ingredients and check the quantity (and quality) of nutrients , but if i start reading a list of ingredients that I don't recognise I'll put it back and either look for an alternative or make my own from scratch. I know a few people who suffer from very high blood pressure who don't 'add' salt to their food, they 'pour' it on, which is disgusting.

RE: Salt
I rarely ever add salt to anything. I actually don't get the big deal and why some people love it so much. My blood pressure is generally a bit low.

Wildcard is awesome.

RE: Salt
most people aren't as physically active as they should be and thus: don't sweat which means they retain salt and that fucks them up... lazy ass salty bastards.

also, there are different kinds of salt... or sodium to be exact.

salt is truly a magnificent substance... over 1001 known uses and 5 which remain secret.

Could you elaborate on these 5 secret uses as I'm stumped (and curious)?

rotf...

losalt = 33% sodium chrloride. 66% potassium chloride.

potassium chloride = while fine and and essential in a healthy diet, is very toxic and poisonous if used in excess... say, for example, by people who think they can use as much as they like since it is healthier than using plain sodium chloride.

used as the third drug in lethal injection executions.

RE: Salt
How about mayonaise?

It's largely a favorite in the USA. I've never known anyone to use it outside of the USA.

Personally, I don't get it. Mayonaise on french fries?
