Salt Lovers Rejoice!
It turns out all that bad press about salt is exactly that: bad press!
There's a new article in Scientific American that reviews the data and finds that salt has been getting a bad rep all this time. The link between salt intake and blood pressure is a weak one at best.
This is good news for us salt lovers. While I agree that sometimes salt can overpower flavors in a meal, there is nothing better than that synergy only salt can create when melding flavors in a dish :)
Pictured are some silly salt shakers I found here. And also to show some Etsy love: FullBlownGlass' awesome salt and pepper shakers.
