Salt is one of those things that might affect heart disease but actually doesn't seem to. It is one of the most important ingredients in most dishes.
Salt is an important factor of some forms of heart disease, salt reduction does help these patients. Some people need salt for proper heart function, low sodium levels are not something you want. Some of are salt sensitive and it raises blood pressure, also not good for your heart.

I buy sea salt only now. I find that if and when I use it, I use only half of what I would normally use. I have even turned my daughter and her husband on to it.

All salt is sea salt. Calling it that just adds to the price.

I'd die, G-d forbid, if I could not have salt. Growing up my mother did a huge de-service to me, the whole family. She used tons of salt. So do I. I have been trying to be careful and use a lot les than I used to. Never the less it is still more than many people. I am definitely addicted to salt.
