The world's leading health authorities -- from the American Heart Association to the World Health Organization -- have urged people to cut back on salt (sodium). There simply is no controversy: Medical experts are nearly unanimous that we're eating too much salt.
I want my friends to be around for more of our traditional group lunches and dinners. So I hope they'll join me in paying a very small price for a normal blood pressure rate -- eat less salt. Luckily, I got into the habit early.
