+ - Dont Cut the Salt, It's Good For You->

Submitted by rubycodez
rubycodez (864176) writes "Dr. Jan Staessen of the University of Leuven in Belgium used data from two studies of 3700 Europeans, in which their salt intake was measured by urinalysis for an average of 8 years. Those subjects with lowest salt intake had the highest rate, 4%, of death by heart attack, while those with the highest salt intake had the lowest heart attack rate at one percent. Yet another urban legend of dietary advice bites the dust."
