I have a familly history of high blood pressure. I used to have blood pressure that bordered on high myself. After I cut drastically back on salt my blood pressure went to a much healthier level. This story is anectdotal, but in my case it is likely there is a direct correlation

This made me laugh, in an ironic way, only because my grandfather had high blood pressure in his 20's, stopped eating salt, lost his high blood pressure, but then never had much salt ever (only what was in the food, and he eat a lot of fresh food), and he had 3 strokes.

Maybe naturally-occuring salts in foods, mineral salts, celtic sea salt, but most definitely not refined white salt that is very heavy on the sodium chloride and lacking in trace minerals.

Seaweed is a good source of iodine. Some dulse leaves added to a salad, for example.

Table salt, lacks it also, until it is added to it as a supplement :shock:
