Is it okay to eat a raw diet of added salt to food?
NO, IT ISN'T
Salt is poisonous
and now I'm compiling a list of all the dangers of salt
if you have anymore, please add
-Salt causes water retention (so even water can make you fat)
-Salt narrows and stiffens arteries,
-Salt causes dehydration (it dehydrates you and therefore concentrates toxins inside your body)
-Salt upsets our natural water balance
-Salt causes halitosis (bad breath)
-Salt causes your perspiration to stink (you sweat out salt instead of fresh, clean water)
-Salt irritates genital organs and can cause horniness (this is real, source is Raw Food and Health)
-Salt can cause cancer
-Salt stresses the kidneys and can lead to kidney failure and disease
-Salt slows down metabolism (thanks, Megan)
-Salt causes dandruff (dandruff is dry scalp, and salt definitely dehydrates or dries up your body)
-Salt retards digestion and excretion
-Salt causes balding (a cat fed salt will eventually lose its fur)
-Salt deadens the taste buds
-Salt compromises cellular function (for cellular function to work, the body needs a balance of sodium and potassium, eating salt (sodium chloride) causes an imbalance and messes up cellular function
-Salt leaves the mouth and throat dry and irritated
-Salt irritates our nerves
-Salt impairs vision
-Salt impairs hearing
-Salt can cause dizziness
-Salt can cause insomnia
If anyone has any other reason why salt is so bad and wants to share, please do so
I just made this discussion to motivate myself and others why salt, even though so commonplace, is so dangerous to health and should be avoided.
I myself have been a serious salt user (with processed food, ketchup), but I want it to end now.
Thank you all.
I didn't see any link to a scientific research and would like to know what do you base that ''facts'' on?
What about a saltwater solution for rinsing the mouth with an oral irrigator, not for drinking, just rinsing to kill bacteria that cause periodontal disease? Oramedia recommends it, Frederic Pattenaude recommends Oramedia's Dr. Robert O. Nara.
