Is your aversion to salt a taste or health factor? If it's health, then the report that salt raises blood pressure was erroneously based on a faulty 1957 study.
Salt is a taste to which one may easily become inured - use sparingly to enjoy the full impact.
Low sodium intake is but an aspect of a wider approach to my diet.
Our bodies, our brains, can exist almost indefinitely on a diet of food which lacks suitable nutritional value. However, in such circumstance, metabolic function may be significantly impaired.
I follow a regime of restricted calorific intake (randomised controlled trials indicate that the effects of this practice may subdue the onset of age related disorders whilst enhancing longevity) and also eschew many of those comestibles categorised as 'convenience foods', ready meals, takeaways, and junk food in general.
An excess of heavily processed foods, trans fats, hydrogenated oils, and simple carbohydrates, contained within the modern diet has contributed to a marked increase in a range of health issues across the UK population - with almost 70% of adults and 25% of children now being categorised as obese according to recent Public Health England statistics.
The obvious results of obesity (diabetes, coronary failure, arthritis, acne etc) tend to be those most openly considered but the affects of diet on mood, motivation, cognition and the functional structure of the brain are, although less discussed, equally important to me.
The Codex Alimentarius is a bare minimum to which the 10 manufacturers who, by and large, control global food and beverage production may adhere - as long as their products don't kill you within 24 hours it's ok.
