Worth Its Weight

From spicelines.com

Everybody loves salt. Everybody needs salt. How much is enough and how much is too much. As a chef I encourage people to season every layer of their cooking for maximum flavor. As a physician, especially as an interventional cardiologist, I am often asked how to limit, or how much to limit salt intake. It is a confusing conundrum. Over the next several days, I’d like to try to answer, from both ends of the equation. We will attempt a bipartisan solution by exploring the brief history of salt, its vital role in our well-being, and how too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing. So check back over the next several days as we take on this topic in well seasoned bites.
