Interesting turn of phrase.

High consumption of SODIUM RICH FOODS is associated with higher incidence of CVD.

Too low SODIUM consumption is associated with even higher risks of CVD.

Sounds pretty clearly that there some confounders in the first one they haven't dealt with. "Sodium rich FOODS"? What are the foods themselves? Is the correlation actually with something else, not the salt?

Like carbs, for example. We know that many times people eating SAD who "just" reduce carbohydrate-rich foods often come up short on sodium and have to consciously add salt to their diet to recover. I don't know, looks pretty sloppy all around.

I eat salt "to taste" - as much as I want and so far nothing has convinced me to do otherwise.
