here's an interesting fact. so, i consume more sodium than anyone i know. my last physical, asked my doctor about it, and his response was, "you do realize that excess sodium effects only 25% of the world's population?". Upon further questioning regarding blood pressure, etc., he assured me that the effect he was describing part and parcel of this descriptor. i'm very glad he mentioned it as i have a very good health record otherwise. how the fuck is it that MOST people have no ill effect from excessive sodium consumption, yet Health Canada advises strongly against i?
