I see that the financially opaque, yet vociferous, lobby group the Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH) has made a study of 526 pie, mash and gravy products.
They conclude that they are too salty!
Particular venom is directed at the chicken and mushroom pie with chips or mash, gravy and peas from Wetherspoons which contains 7.5g of salt.
Blah blah blah!
Here's a few factoids:
1 Salt is necessary for our survival
2 Those with high blood pressure are able to choose not to eat high salt products
3 Drink plenty of water and exercise properly to bring up a sweat, and you will lose any "alleged excess" salt in your body
4 CASH receive finance from the FSA, which means that a government organ is funding a body which is dedicated to changing government policy. That is not right!
5 Cash do not publish any financial data in their annual reports eg:
- who funds them?
- how much do they receive?
- how much are their office bearers paid?
- what do they spend their money on?
Beware of shouty, opaque self elected pressure groups!
