  • You are able to clear kidney disease by eradicating its root cause forever from now Even if you are in “end stage renal failure”.

  • So let me get this straight. I go to the trouble of finding and referencing human health studies on sodium intake for you, and my reward will be to hear your crack-pot theories and illogical rebuttals? Sounds like a great deal. I’ll get right on to that… If you have some startling new evidence on the effects of sodium intake, I suggest you submit it to a peer-reviewed journal. I’ll read it with interest there.

  • I went on low sodium about three weeks ago, due to a twisted knee that was very swollen. I thought that all the salt I was eating was not helping it to heal. But I do not cook with a lot of spices and herbs, and find that making recipes is too much work for my simple life. What works for me is to just cook whole foods (meat, chicken, vegs) and eat fresh fruit and nuts, and use salt-less butter. At the table, I take the teeniest pinch of salt and sprinkle it lightly over the entire plate. This serves to give me the taste of every grain of salt as it hits my mouth, as it is on the surface, and I can enjoy almost everything this way. I don’t crave salt any more, and my taste changed after about a week, to where now even a tiny bit of salt like that is almost too much. Same with jelly and jam. It tastes too sweet, even when made with fruit juice. I use a sweet like that on sodium free pancakes/blintz, and who misses the salt? So, no, we don’t have to turn into Julia Childs to eat low sodium. Keeping it simple is often more motivating than restocking the kitchen and buying a few low sodium cook books. Most favorite “recipes” can be modified to low sodium fare, with a bit of imagination and trial and error. You lose your taste for salt, believe it or not, and that is the good news.

  • m(salt) = 6,000 g
    M(salt) = M(Na) + M(Cl) = (22.99+35.45) g/mol = 54.44 g/mol
    n(salt) = m/M = 6,000 g / 54.44 g/mol = 0,1102 mol
    n(Na) = n(salt) = 0,1102 mol
    M(Na) = 22,99 g/mol
    m(Na) = n*M = 0,1102 mol * 22,99 g/mol = 2,533 g

    I know that this was just a demonstration but why not (when you are using quantity calculations) use a more precise way? Like the other guy at Khanacademy always do…

  • Salt does not cause high blood pressure. Being over weight (too much stored energy), a high sugar and high carbohydrate diet causes high blood pressure and if not dealt with will cause hypertension.
    Get rid of the sugar and carbs, get to your recommended weight and your blood pressure will become normal, as will your kidney and liver function.
