RUSH: How many of you have grown up believing that salt is the Autobahn to heart disease? Salt: You eat it and you’re on the superhighway to high blood pressure, cardiac arrest, sweating a lot, obesity, and eventually you’re gonna need diuretics. Well, guess what? Researchers have just said that all of that is bohunk, and now it’s the opposite. Eating salt is not only okay, it’s necessary. Eating salt is good for you, and all of these medical maladies — high blood pressure and other things — are no longer the case. Science once again rears its head to assure us of what it does not know.
