Salt May Not Be As Bad As You Thought

For years I have read bits and pieces here and there that indicate that salt might not be as bad for us as we have been told. This opinion piece in the New York Times online by Gary Taubes is one of the most cogent I have seen on the issue. Apparently, even if reducing your salt intake does lower your blood pressure, there is no evidence that it lengthens your life.

Actually, the evidence seems to point to it shortening your life.
