In the last 50 years, consumption of white table salt among the North American population has greatly contributed to the following disease states:
- high blood pressure (the top disease state)
- vascular disease causing blood clots
- shrinking of arteries that carry blood to the kidneys, that eventually leads to kidney failure and much more.
Your body needs salt. To make a decision to not have salt is not a good idea. Your body needs good, unprocessed salt, like Himalayan salt or sea salt.
