Salt Vs. Science

Scientists can’t agree whether salt is killing us. Here’s why.
Allow me to summarize:
There are beaucoup meta-studies referencing other meta-studies... ad nauseum. But they have prejudiced themselves by referencing only those previous studies which align with a presupposed answer. Further, this intellectual atrocity is committed by both sides of the issue.

There. That was easy: bogus science. And now it has proliferated to the point where no one can sort it out anymore. See the Site for a cool graph of ideological dependencies.

Someone in the comments section compared it to man-made global warming (a thing that seems to be unquestionable for most people just like evolution).

My favorite comments (sequential):

"Are salt deniers as bad as global warming deniers?"

"They are all funded by Big Morton."
