  1. I'm a minute in, and I think I can already spot a potential flaw in the study. People who are on a low sodium diet are often people who are on that diet because of congestive heart failure or high blood pressure. Those people are already at a higher risk for heart-related death. I suspect what we have here is an example of selection bias.

  2. my dad was diagnosed with congestive hear failure he was only allowed 1500 mL sodium a day any more sodium and he would retain water in his lungs and chest to little salt is bad to much is bad but it differs for each person

  3. Oh lookie! The Wall Street Journal, a once respected news organization, is carrying water for The Salt Institute. Hey, while you're at it, tell us again how global warming is a hoax.
