Re: Nutrition Facts
Exactly. I would have no problem with "for most people, it's best to limit your sale intake" - that would be accurate and not get the "SALT IS BAD!!!!!" nonsense into people's heads.
A great example is McDonalds (very healthy to start with, heh heh) round here had a habit for some time of using only "lo salt", which was salt made half with sodium and half with potassium, I think. Fantastic. Except if you have a sodium deficiency when it does, in fact, make you very, very ill.
Here's a thought . . . instead of "lo salt" and artificial sweetener nonsense, why not just use regular salt and sugar and stuff . . . and if your body says "NEED SALT!" or "NEED SUGAR!" just listen to it. Tricking the body, by having it taste a natural and necessary flavour but instead feeding it artificial substitutes with little or no metabolic use serves no helpful purpose at all.
Sweeteners = making people fat by causing sugar cravings. True fact. Your tongue might not be able to tell the difference, but your brain and digestive system sure do.
