    THIS IS STUPID. ANYTHING IN EXCESS IS BAD FOR YOU. The one thing you should never do is to completely eliminate any one item from your diet. Sodium chloride, is necessary for proper electrolyte functions in the human body. Without it, you become dehydrated.

    Thank you for advising me on how important it is to watch my sodium intake. I try to eat healthy, but i love to indulge whenever there is good food around. But because i suffer with hypertension I try not to use table salt.
