Max Eilerson: Bring me more of these... Salted. I work better with salt. - Did you know that in the 20th century they actually thought that salt was bad for you? Listen to the animals I say. The lion will sit down with the lamb to share the salt lick. - Good enough for them, good enough for me.
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU GET AN ARTICLE ABOUT SALT CONSUMPTION PUBLISHED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO TELL THE FUCKING DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SODIUM CHLORIDE AND OTHER SALTS.
Moderation of each appears to be key. Funny enough, the guy doesn't mention potassium once in this article.
raysmj: The idea that fat is bad for you has been thoroughly demolished AFAICT
Depends on what kind of fat we're talking about. The Paleo/Weston Price/Low-Carb Diet, etc. idea that all fat, any fat, is good for the body all the time, even to the point of using butter and lard in everything all the time, and that all carbs (and potatoes, even, which contain all manner of nutrients and fiber, etc., and at the same time there's more than one kind of potato, y'know) are to avoided is hardly a consensus thing among those engaged in evidence-based medicine.
