hi guys...i know i post a lot on here...but it seems like almost everything you read raises more health questions.
And if you put two and two together a lot of "Good" things seem to be bad.
I don't each much salt, don't like crisps or savoury biscuits much, dont add much salt to anything really. But my housemate bought these AMAZING rye crackers. all natural and no additives , just rye flour, salt, oil. yummm.
finished a whole box?! and went out and bought more.
Being loaded with salt (though to be fair my idea of 'loaded' might not be, coz im generally pretty wary of the stuff) this prompted a health discussion (she's really into that kind of thing at the moment) and the whole stroke thing came up...because apparently its been suggested that too much salt means higher stroke risk.
But if you actually read the research...thats only in people with low cholesterol. So..
I'm just wondering...is this an actual fact, low cholesterol plus moderate salt intake doubles stroke risk? AND...
how much salt, come to think of it, is a lot of salt?? I really have no idea. And never worried coz i just didn't like the stuff. but these are good...
