Well lets preface it with this
Everyone is different acronym. EID. Yes if you have high blood pressure reducing sodium could work for you and yes if your dehydrated sodium will hep you re hydrate. That is the science behind a sports drink for example. So of course we are going to have different solutions to different problems dependent on your lifestyle an genetics in regards to this.
I think most of us are familiar with the mostly busted myth that fats were ultimately responsible for all our health woes while sugar was touted as something to enjoy in moderation. Up until a year or so ago our Canadian food guide said a glass of whatever fruit juice you may find was the same as eating the said fruit. Wait what? something with corn syrup in it is the same as eating an apple? The point being as time goes on much of the concrete science around diet has been revealed to be heavily influenced by food manufacturers, spending millions in marketing and lobbying in order to not be labeled as the bad one. Don't even get me started on Crisco and vegetable oils, there is an easy rabbit hole for anyone to go down if they choose. The eradication of natural animal fats for highly processed seed oils was a doozey, touted as a health benefit and even better lower cost. Never mind the fact that they have to be extracted with high heat and pressure using methods you would expect to see in an industrial plastic making facility. And research is starting to show the negative health aspects of this marketing switch that was done to us
Que the vegan to tell us all how bad animal products are....
Anyway in that fashion I present to you another controversial dietary element, sodium
This article is a summary but if you click on the video at the bottom it will send you to the full episode
Nutritional science is still in its infancy. But as new pronouncements about dietary risks and benefits emerge every day, we need to remember to take them with a grain of salt.
