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.
I agree, how else to you explain the longevity it Asian cultures that have loads of salt fermented foods. Kimchi anyone?
I believe that some to many autoimmune diseases are sparked by various pathogens that try to disguise their dna by mimicking ours and eventually provoke an autoimmune response on the tissue it is hiding in and mimicking.
Salt is sodium chloride. It's property is to be white.
It is not *washed with chloride". When you put salt in water it dissolves. It cannot be *washed* to be bleached.
Salt, in its natural form does not contribute to autoimmune disorders.
What are the medical studies you performed which demonstrated this?
Now, if they want to try to link the nitrites, phosphates and other flavorings, such as MSG, then they may have a case.
Maybe, but then again, what are the studies you have done to link nitrites, phosphates and other flavorings to T cell activity?
I doubt it. By the way, nitrites and phosphates are not flavorings. You should also be aware that the average person consumes 10 times more glutamate from naturally occurring sources than they do from added sources. Your body cannot function without glutamate, and you probably have 3 or 4 lbs. of it inside you at this very moment.
Agreed, in fact a few weeks ago it came out that too much salt was better for you then too little. Actually they found a connection between too much cleanliness and autoimmune. A doctor in Mexico noticed that his patients with MS who had sever diarrhea were not have relapses as often. Turns out the little worms we used to eat causes our immune system to not fight itself.
