The concept of nutrition is something the people are giving a lot of importance to owing to the health consciousness. However, there is always a shift in the world of nutrition due to the constant research going on in the field of foods. The headlines given to the reports or news may lead one to a different platform but the written text may conclude something different that is either beneficial or non-beneficial.
The current hot topic is the intake rate of salt by an individual in a day. The people across the globe are advised to generally consume only about 6 grams/day for maintaining a good health. People are advised by the worldwide dietary to consume that much amount of salt. Nutritional orthodoxy is currently grabbing the attention of millions of people across the globe. The questions regarding the ill effects of salts on health are always daunting the minds of the public.
However, here comes a US-based researcher James DiNicolantonio, who has written down the book “The Salt Fix” in an attempt to challenge the conventional cons regarding the use of salt. The subtitle “Why the experts got it all wrong—and how eating more [salt] might save your life” of the book itself is enough to contradict the orthodoxy. Since a decade, salt has been linked to high blood pressure or heart disease risks. However, lately, DiNicolantonio explains very clearly that too much salt can shield one against insulin resistance, kidney diseases, heart diseases, and diabetes.
Though this argument may seem bizarre by the leading medical bodies, he still plans to challenge the bad advice on salt that has been heard since a decade. The ill health related to the excess of salt is being supported by many medical institutes. The basic reason for The Salt Fix receiving attention is due to its headlines compared to the findings based on the support of salt for better health. The current study may prove to be the Holy Grail in the coming years so as to help the world of nutrition interact with the public.
According to the World Health Organization’s report, the cut down on the salt intake helps save more lives compared to including it in higher amount in one’s diet. Thus, such a challenge given by DiNicolantonio to the foolproof evidence is not at all advised and can be considered to be perilous for consumption.
