I see our old chums from Consensus Action on Salt & Health (CASH) have got on their high horses again about the dangers of salt.
This time their bile is directed towards bread, seemingly bread contains oodles of salt, in fact one loaf of brown "pain de campagne" bread from upmarket chain Paul contained 2.83g of salt per 100g – a higher concentration of salt than seawater.
Prof Graham MacGregor, Cash chairman, said: "It is frankly outrageous that bread still contains so much salt. .."
Save me from the farking "outrage" of these single issue zealots!
Do I give a fark?
We should be allowed to eat as much or as little salt as we want, without these zealots interfering in the minutiae of our daily lives.
A balanced diet, combined with a decent fluid intake and exercise (that induces sweat) will ensure that the body excretes any salt that it doesn't need in a perfectly healthy fashion.
The high blood pressure that these zealots bang on about is primarily caused by stress, lack of exercise and a remarkably shite diet (in which "salty bread" is but a mere smidgeon).
I ate chunks of sea salt as a child, when I shaved large blocks of sea salt for my mum's salt pots, it never caused me any problems.
If people are so worried about the salt, then add heaps of sugar to your food..problem solved!!
