BS!!! Table Salt is washed with chlorine to bleach it white. Our bodies need sodium to function. Salt, in its natural form does not contribute to autoimmune disorders. Now, if they want to try to link the nitrites, phosphates and other flavoring’s, such as MSG, then they may have a case.

Maybe Bloomboob got something right by accident! Maybe exacerbations of some autoimmune diseases, e.g. MS, can be associated with excess sodium chloride consumption.

Try minerals salt or pink sea salt. Iodization is the culprit , not the salt itself.

My doc says there is a direct correlation between the rise in thyroid problems and iodized salt reduction.
These studies are always interesting, the researchers set out to prove what they think is a problem and well find it.

Before refrigeration, food stabilization was by salt. Were these diseases prevalent hundreds or thousands of years ago?

The "salt causes high blood pressure" scam is falling apart, so they have to manufacture a new crisis, just like the replaced global warming with climate change.

What about natural sea salt on real foods, not processed crap?

This study might be more important if the mouse immune system was similar to that of humans. It isn't. I didn't read it in this article, but the mice used for this study were bred to develop MS. That seems unusual to me, and adds even more questions about reliability. I wonder if researchers have ever shown that people who develop MS, or suffer from other types of autoimmune disorders, are sensitive to salt. You'd think that would already be common knowledge...that is, if this study is credible.

Why did they not discuss potassium levels in regards to this study? Potassium helps excrete high levels of sodium from the body.

So how much salt did they feed those mice, proportionally? They said they fed them the salt equivalent of a regular fast-food diet, which in a human would be high enough, but for the proportional weight of a mouse, it’d be like a human being force-fed several pounds of salt. Heck, that in and of itself probably killed off the mice. It’s like their tests of artificial sweeteners — it’s the equivalent of making the mice drink several gallons of coke at a sitting. Sorry, but I’m calling BS too.

I grew up in a low-salt household. If it didn’t say “low sodium”, it just wasn’t allowed.
Most of my family has one autoimmune disorder or another. Personally, I get sick if I try to go without salt anymore.

Remember the old “Hemo the Magnificent” Disney cartoons? Our blood has about as much salt concentration as sea water, and without salt, we would die a horrible and painful death.
Bottom line. Eat at home more. Restaurant food tends to have more salt and fat in it.

I had a couple of bowls of chili and put some salt on it. Wow were my bowels inflamed. Damn salt.
