Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning salt. Starting in 1972 health experts realized a connection between salt intake and a temporary rise in blood pressure. This led them to believe that if people ate a lot of salt all the time it could lead to hypertension a precursor to heart disease and stroke. So without any scientific evidence the health industry and the government pushed people to cut back on salt. Now 40 years later the goverment and many health experts still push this agenda. Despite the fact that four years ago Italian researchers in several large studies proved that individuals who had heart failure and had salt restricted greatly increased their risk of death.
