  1. And that is based on what? Reducing the carbon footprint of Morton Salt?

  2. Ignore the salt scares. At least once a year have a thorough blood panel done, (health fairs are good for this). Monitor your electrolytes, especially sodium and potassium. If all of them are within the proper range, forget about it. If for instance, sodium is too low, increase your salt intake, if it’s too high, decrease your sodium intake. Potassium is important too, if it or sodium is too low you are risking fibrillation and a possible stroke. Take charge of your health.

  3. I have recently added a half-teaspoon of salt to my intake before going to the gym to lift weights. It has worked well to reduce cramping on max lifts.
