"I think that this is the single most important issue in human health at present. I subscribe to the view that practically all illness is nutritionally related and that poor nutrition results from inadequate salt intake. Salt is the raw material which the body uses to drive all the processes of life. The Human Autonomic System has been designed to cope with pretty much any level of salt intake, and the benefits of high salt intake include improved circulation of blood to the fine capillaries which restores and maintains sight, hearing, touch, taste and feel. My further view is that the 1% p.a. increase in cancer deaths in Australia is entirely because of a reduction in the salt intake of the general population."
