Publisher's Summary

We all know the dangers of sugar and salt: but the danger attributed to the second white crystal has more to do with getting too little of it, not too much. Too little salt can shift the body into semi-starvation mode, causing insulin resistance, and may even cause twice as much fat to be absorbed for every gram that's consumed.

Too little salt in certain populations can also actually increase blood pressure as well as resting heart rate. In order to hydrate and nourish our cells, transmit nerve signals, contract our muscles, ensure proper digestion and breathing, and maintain proper heart function, we need salt.

In this book, a leading cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy overturns conventional thinking about salt and explores the little-understood importance of it, the health dangers of having too little, and how salt can actually help you improve sports performance, crush sugar cravings, and stave off common chronic illnesses.

Brilliant insight re. salt in our diets

So many great bits of knowledge and practical advice on every single aspect of how to best incorporate salt in our diets.

This book dispels so much bad advice that has been foisted on an unsuspecting public over the past few decades, with such tragic results.

This is a one of a kind book and I would sincerely say of critical importance to people dealing with illnesses and vague lethargy, and athletes seeking superior performance.

Very highly recommended. It's already noticeably improved my life in a few short days.

a must read

The book confirmed and expanded on what I've learned to be true through diet this last year of my life. Salt is important and you would have to try hard if possible to overtake salt. I think everyone should read this book and drop sugar. Reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because I disagree with some if his dietary suggests like Ezekiel bread. No asked for a cook book mate, just to learn about Salt. I also disagree with his idea of pushing a sugar tax. i disagree with these methods of repression and finding it insulting to human intelligence. People should make decisions based on knowledge not repression.

Fabulous

I wish I could get my entire family to read this book. It explains the history of why we believe “low-salt”diets to be healthy.

Changed my way of thinking about eating

The most valuable self-help book I have read in the last 5 years-and I read a lot of them. It provided excellent technical information in a format a moderately-informed layperson can understand. From the beginning it felt intuitively correct and the scientific references only confirmed the message. My only criticism is that there was a lot of repetition, but I liked the narrator's voice and listened to the end.

Amazingly revealing!

We have been mislead for decades on what we should be eating and how it affects our health.
Dr. DiNicolantonio is yet another example of real scientists seeking the truth and exposing it to the masses.
