Can any of our resident experts please shed some light on the very thorny question of salt usage??? I am 64 and have used salt VERY freely all of my life. Friends throw up their hands and shake their heads in despair as to the amount of salt that I use. The only side effects that I find, is that my sweat tastes salty......but 'aint it supposed to taste that way. ????
Strangely enough, three of my non-salt-using friends, who used to preach to me about my "wicked ways" have all died, whilst I, "The Evil One", am still going very strong.....in fact I am about to leave home now for my 4th. 10km plod this week, which, interspersed with 10kms. bike rides every second day seems to be the antidote to salt over-dozing.
:-)))) Am I just an "Old Salt" or what???
