I wish this was true, as I consume alot of salt. Food simply tastes boring without it, and sauces completely remove the original flavor.

However, all my common sense is screaming "FALSE!".

It may or may not be true, but your "common sense" probably tells you that because you've been conditioned to believe it since you were young.

The Article said:
"We need to take this article with a large grain of salt,"
Worth reading the whole thing just for that.

Well, there's going to be a mass over-population in few decades so why not fool a lot of people into getting heart-attacks and such with articles like these?

We're not fooling people, just weeding out the stupid.

There's always been an aspect of genetic cleansing through propaganda.

Everything in moderation. Going too low on your salt can kill you just as readily as a heart attack.

I'm going to take that with a moderate sized grain of salt.

Indeed. Your body is a biological machine that relies on a number of factors to be balanced. If you go too far in one direction you can cause just as much damage as going too far in the other. Granted it would be pretty hard to get too little salt in today's time and age, but still possible.

Agreed, a saltless diet is very hard, but problems like diabetes can throw your salt way low.
