Reply Paul Lundbohm says: October 11, 2013 at 3:42 am The increased risks seen with daily sodium intakes below 3,000mg include greater risk of death and heart attack (Paterna S et al. 2008; Paterna S et al. 2009; O'Donnell MJ et al. 2011; Stolarz-Skrzypek K et al. 2011) Reply metallitech says: August 12, 2014 at 9:34 pm 1.5 gram per day; that's pretty hard! A teaspoon of salt is much more than that. Reply Wade Patton says: January 4, 2015 at 5:02 pm because chicken breast is dry bland meat without lots of seasoning. gimme thighs! mmm bbq! Reply adamscott says: January 14, 2016 at 2:20 am I never realised how much of it i was consuming – so much in foods like bread, vegan meat alternatives, cereal. Reply matchbox555 says: February 14, 2016 at 4:50 pm how come Japanese eat tons of salt with no problem? Reply Katie Gey van Pittius says: May 17, 2016 at 6:38 pm Would love to see a study on those Nepali/Tibetans who take salt in their tea. Actually, I put salt in my green tea, with a squeeze of lemon. Very very nice. Would be too sad if I had to finish that box of tea without salt.. Reply Tom says: November 2, 2016 at 6:16 pm but what about Marmite?! Reply Zoe Adams says: February 6, 2018 at 7:19 pm My doctor recommended i eat more salt because I have naturally low blood pressure and if I'm dehydrated I can faint If I make sure I drink enough water then it's manageable, but that's also with me putting salt in my food. She said eating more salt was better for me than taking medication Reply Al Cameron says: July 11, 2018 at 5:11 am Okay so if you don't have high blood pressure what does sodium do to your arteries that's so bad? Reply Kamala Specht says: September 10, 2018 at 4:11 pm Dr. Greger…I'm on whole food plant/vegan way of eating and I have been salt-free going on 5 days. Taste buds have changed, but I'm really concerned about LOW SODIUM. I'm eating (and juicing) celery, but still sodium low. Good news is my BP is lower within range (It starting to rise 2 months ago???). I can do this, but don't want my sodium to potassium (which is high) to get out of whack. Could you address this in one of your videos. Love and Thanks.
