Dr. Joseph Mercola explains why the medical establishment's war on salt is dangerous to your health.
The theory that salt is bad for you and contributes to high blood pressure and heart disease is an idea that has become more or less cemented as dogma. Alas, the war on salt has had a number of drawbacks and unintended consequences.

Eat your way to a healthy heart from this list of sixteen superfoods.
Diet has a large impact on our health. What we eat can either keep us energized or make us sick. Consuming saturated fats, sodium, and sugar-loaded foods as a fuel isn’t good for health in the long run, as our bodies do not get all the necessary nutrients and become prone to serious health conditions, like diabetes and heart disease. So eating natural foods as much as possible and avoiding processed and fast foods makes a lot of sense.
Speaking of cardiovascular health specifically, eating particular heart-friendly foods can go a long way in keeping the heart working properly. The heart is the body’s powerhouse as it ensures that a healthy blood supply reaches all the organs and tissues to keep them nourished. (Miracle molecule helps boost circulation.) Read more
