    And I'm sure food producers knew this all along, or is that to cynical.

    Thats really interesting, I've recently cut adding salt to all my familys food.
    I wonder if that's why I've been in such a bad mood the last couple of days. :confused:

    I never ever add salt to anything I cook - no wonder I'm a grumpy cow!

    LOL IB, how can you be grumpy in an island paradise!

    Maybe Lind, but it's healthier isn't it.

    Im a salt addict! Well, i used to be... I used to POUR it on - especially to chips and vegetables. I put it on veg as i thought it would give them more flavour and make me like them more. Although Im pretty certain it's why I now have swollen ankles!

    This is quite interesting.

    Ive researched online to find out why I have swolen ankles as this was one of the only explanations as to why. And since doing Cambridge my ankles have definately slimmed down.

    Whenever I say I don't use salt, people always tell me I ought to have loads to counteract the extra heat here. But I never get muscle cramps etc. I always drink plenty of water. Anyhow, if you eat any processed food at all, even the sweet stuff, you'll be eating salt. But I never understand why people are so hung up on salt.

    Interesting. Maybe I should make the effort to have a little salt then. Presumably the Army's medics have researched it... might do some Googling. Thanks
