Why do you use salt? Do you consider that most packaged foods already have salt in it?

Hands off the salt shaker, health Canada to recommend

Under proposed revisions to Health Canada's food guide, Canadians could be advised to eat foods with little or no added salt, but the evidence on the benefits for healthy people is a grey area.

Addiction Salt

It needs to be highlighted the danger of too much salt, but as the report states, also having too little salt for your body can cause complications also.

In the UK, the government has taken the initiative of government health warnings regarding salt intake, and they recommend that you consume no more than 6grammes of salt per day. To make it easier for people to recognize how much salt is in ready made food, they have made it a requirement to state on packaging and labels how many grammes are in the food.

I know that this doesn't sound like a large amount of allowable salt, but remembering how light salt is, in reality it is a fair amount.

Maybe the Canadian government may start something off like this themselves. It does seem to clarify what is good for you and what is not.

Salt Addiction Health & Special Psychology

I got my salt addiction from my mother...she and I both seem to salt our food before we even taste it. When we eat with family, my grandmother keeps the salt shaker beside her. She says our salt intake is going to kill us before we know it. I agree with her, I have got to slow down, and so do many others.

Addiction Salt

I have high blood pressure that is effected by salt, which means I can't have much salt in my diet. When growing up, I never wanted salt on anything and like vegatable and other foods with no salt or anything else on it. But when I started in with high blood pressure treatment, I suddenly got the craving for it all the time. Occassionally I will have allot of salt but then have to purge the next day with allot of water and no salt. But I love salt on any thing now, and constantly think what I'm eating needs salt. But I have to hold back because my salt in take needs to remain at a specific levels and the doctor monitors it, she especially checks when its high.

Addiction Salt

I am a salt addict but not so much as I used to be. I got it from my mom which is a salt addict in the extreme. For example, she will salt the bottom of a fry pan before she fries a hamburger. She salts everything, even before she tastes it. Several years ago, while I was pregnant, my doctor prohibited salt so that got me off the habit somewhat. Now I still like it but I know it's unhealthy so I try to limit myself.

Salt Addiction

I cook and eat with almost no salt added, I just do not have the need for it and my family does not care about it much either. Here in Caribbean we eat food with lots of seasonings so you do not really miss the salt.
