SALT

Everybody believes we use too much salt.

Processed “junk” food increases blood pressure which may cause strokes and heart disease. 

Some food producers are causing us to develop an even greater salt craving.

Most dietary guidelines advise against excessive consumption of salt.

There is a biological rationale for these concerns.

The body keeps its important balance of water and salt in a narrow range.

When we eat salt, we automatically retain more water to dilute the salt.

So the volume of blood goes up and so does our blood pressure; the heart then has to pump harder and so the blood pressure goes even higher.

High blood pressure causes kidney disease, strokes which may result in a weak or failing heart.

People who have pre-hypertension or high blood pressure should minimize the use of added salt.

We know that salt is vital to human life.

We also know about many other wonderful uses for salt?

While some of the sodium we consume comes from processed foods, the salt shaker still contributes.

So sprinkle lightly.

Sea salt is produced from the evaporation of seawater.

Some cooks believe it tastes better than salt from mines.

There are many websites displaying innacurate, inconsistent or junk information about salt.

They are misguided and misrepresenting.

To help you become more informed, we have incorporated numerous links that share a wealth of informatin about salt , its uses and effects. 

They are very interesting and portray discussions for and against salt use and consumption.

Please note that all video clips were obtained from websites that will not cause harm to your computer.

How it's Made Solar Salt, Gritting Salt

Salt, also known as table salt or rock salt (halite), is a crystalline mineral that is composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of ionic salts.
It is absolutely essential for animal life, but can be harmful to animals and plants in excess.
Salt is one of the oldest, most ubiquitous food seasonings and salting is an important method of food preservation.
The taste of salt (saltiness) is one of the basic human tastes.
Salt for human consumption is produced in different forms: unrefined salt (such as sea salt), refined salt (table salt), and iodized salt.
It is a crystalline solid, white, pale pink or light gray in color, normally obtained from sea water or rock deposits. Edible rock salts may be slightly grayish in color because of mineral content.
Because of its importance to survival, salt has often been considered a valuable commodity during human history.
However, as salt consumption has increased during modern times, scientists have become aware of the health risks associated with high salt intake, including high blood pressure in sensitive individuals.
Therefore, some health authorities have recommended limitations of dietary sodium, although others state the risk is minimal for typical western diets.(en.wikipedia.org described in the excerpt.)

How adding spice to your diet can reduce your intake of salt, and how cooking lessons could lower our sodium levels

Research found people who had cooking lessons had less salt in their diet
Spices and herbs are a good way to cut down on excessive sodium intake
Learning to use these seasonings is the first step to dietary change


Cooking lessons to show people how to use spices and herbs help cut their salt intake, say researchers.
They found teaching people how to flavour food with spices and herbs was more effective at lowering salt intake than having them do it on their own.
In a new study, 55 volunteers ate a low-sodium diet for four weeks during which time researchers provided all foods and calorie-containing drinks.
Salt is the main source of sodium in food.

OVERWEIGHT HIGHWAY TO A HEALTHY LIFE

After listening to Dr. Phil very very carefully and upon completion of his narration, I stated that I may as well close the door of my factory and throw the key away because there is no room in this diet for Mr. Goudas Rice, Flour, Sugar, Table Salt, Vegetable Oil, Syrups, Snappy Pop, Milk and many of the thousand products that I produce.

In a few words, it would be suicide.

I am very much aware of the effects of being overweight and the danger of contracting diabetes.

In fact, I have this fear that one day I may be charged for criminal activities due to over-feeding my loyal consumers with all my wonderful products.

Not minimizing this situation, I felt that it was of the utmost importance to incorporate this article on my website to encourage people to move towards a healthier lifestyle.

The article in my biography about my friend, Mr. Montini never revealed daily events.

For instance, that he had lost part of his leg due to diabetes, and his vision was almost non-existant, and that on many occasions, I took him from his office to a restuarant for an evening out.

His strict diet to maintain whatever was left from his body; except for brilliant mind, since his body was eroding from the disease translated into the only food he could indulge in, was a salad with a few drops of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Since, I would not like to see anyone in this situation, I sincerely hope that the information in this book will be an inspiration and starting point for those who realise that this is the path that they are on, or are heading into, and that he/she will stop for a moment to consider and evaluate his/her situation and the consequences, eventually, making a conscious decision to make a lifestyle change that may save his/her life.

I am not advocating or endorsing this diet.

I simply feel that the circumstances that Dr. Phil found himself in is not isolated.

His experience is real and life changing.

Life is good. Moderation should be a key factor in nutrition.

Without one’s health,there is no life

I hope 

Regards, Spyros Peter Goudas
