We’ve all heard that salt is supposed to be bad for us. But is there any proof of that? A new review of all the best science shows that there is not. There is no evidence that reducing the amount of salt you eat will reduce your risk of either heart disease or premature death.
This does not mean that unlimited amounts of salt is necessarily safe. Eating a moderate amount is probably best. At least try to avoid the salt in fast food, processed, packaged food and soda. Even if the salt doesn’t matter much it means you’ll avoid other unhealthy things.
