Salt: Not only does it make things taste good, it's good for you
For years now I've tried to tell people that salt gets a bad rap. Not only is it not bad for the average person, as you all know, you can't cook well without a fair amount of it. From Scientific American we get this article that shows some of the piss poor "science" behind the whole salt is bad for you schtick.
Maybe we can slowly start to open people's eyes (I'm looking right at my mother who won't put salt in rice or pasta water because it's "bad for you") and help them make tastier meals. Can I get an Amen from the Salt corner? (boos are accepted too though not appreciated).
