Too Little Salt Can Also Be A Problem

Well, this should clear up the confusion. Not.
We've been bombarded for more than two decades with scientists and doctors telling us to eat less salt. Statistics show that those eating excessive salt in their diets are far more likely to suffer from cardiovascular problems, but as with any nutritional or diet information, moderation and balance is the key. Everyone is familiar with the active salt intake in hot countries like Mexico and Spain, where more salt is lost through perspiration, so it should come as no surprise that too little salt can also be a problem.

A study in the November 23 issue of JAMA shows that too high or too low sodium levels in urine carries a far higher risk for cardiovascular events (for higher levels), or cardiovascular death and hospitalization for congestive heart failure for lower levels.
Still think they have any idea what they are talking about?
