Food police self-debunking: Few people eat low-salt diet but population healthier than ever

Bonnie Liebman of the Center for Science in the Public Interest writes:

While that matters for setting daily sodium targets, it applies to few people, since only about 5 percent of adults get less than 2,300 mg of sodium a day (not counting what comes from the salt shaker).

So while few adults follow the salt-cutting advice of CSPI, by any objective measure (like life expectancy), public health has never been better.

  1. Is Bonnie the dog who is a member of the Center for Science in the Public Interest? In any case, her comments make as much sense as a barking dog does.

  2. Anytime you hear something along the lines of “70% of adults over 57 get less than 45% of the necessary dose of unobtanium from their natural diets”, it’s a strong marker for tomfoolery.
