This has been recently debunked by the American Heart Association. Only
hypertensives that are being medicated with hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ),
Lasix, or other diuretics need to moderate salt usage. There is no known
medical reason to avoid salt. The only reason to avoid it is overly
salted food. I add it late in preparation. It gives a cleaner taste with
more control.

This is great news as is the debunking of the low fat-high carbo mantra.

Pass the salt.
