The Salt Fix
Great book, evidence-based, well researched, and will likely be a real game changer. Author is a respected cardiovascular research scientist, Pharm.D. at St. Luke’s Mid America Heart Inst., Kansas City, MO. The author points out another nutrition misconception that we have been teaching for decades like low fat and cholesterol, no eggs, and high carbs. He gives us the research to feel confident in what we say.
As nutritionists, we need to look at the research from the beginning of the low salt recommendation and reevaluate what we tell people.

The U.S. healthcare system and its nutrition guidelines have come up short in recent years as one after another is exposed for being poorly researched and not founded on good science. This highly qualified researcher is bringing another to our attention in this book.
