An expert committee of the National Institute of Medicine concluded today that there is no evidence supporting drastic reductions in dietary salt intake. But the dead-enders at the American heart Association don’t care.
USA Today reports:
The [American Heart Association] “is not going to change its position on sodium, and it stands with many other major health organizations,” Antman says. “We don’t want people to be distracted from the important health message that there is benefit in aggressively lowering sodium from the current levels in the American diet.”
Indeed, why distract anyone with facts?
