Why you desperately need SALT–and what kind

If I go to a restaurant and eat something with a lot of sodium, I can barely make a fist when I wake up the next day.   My fingers are like pudgy sausages.   My body hates salt—or so I thought. We all know that too much sodium is linked to heart disease.   […]
