Nanny nanny boo boo, I am NOT afraid of you, Salt! OOPS!

Monday, April 24, 2017

I don't retain water; I don't have high blood pressure; I don't have ANY health problems diagnosed by any health professional. And salt makes food taste so much better! WHY should I care about all the hysteria surrounding salt? Well, that's what I THOUGHT until 2 days ago.

There aren't MANY scientific studies that tell me I'm wrong to enjoy my present careless consumption of salt -- but I just read about one. "1". ONE! While it is ONLY one, it is an extremely rigorous one -- it is part of the nutritional scientific studies being done so humans can go to Mars. People's lives will be dependent on these studies, so already now, studies have been done on several humans isolated for over 200 days. And these people have been scientifically scrutinized and sampled within an inch of their still-Earth-bound lives so that others might survive the trip to Mars.

So what have the scientists discovered? I'll put it in a nutshell for you: SALT MAKES every single one of the test subjects GAIN FAT WEIGHT! (They are not talking water retention here!) AND SALT DESTROYS MUSCLE! Double whammy!

Damn! I am not happy. I'm gonna have to change my salty ways!
I know, you want details. You want sources. You don't believe me. So do your own research! It can't be too hard to find... I wasn't even looking for it!
