Salt is Good for You, Salt Additives Bad

I’ve got a video posted here by Dr. Leonard Coldwell.  Although the video is about curing cancer within weeks, that is not what I want to talk about.

Starting at about minute 4:18 he starts talking about salt.  And what he says I had never heard before.  “Very often table salt is one third sand, one third glass and one third salt.”

He goes on to say that the “sand” causes abrasion in the arteries and they start to bleed.  Then cholesterol comes in to stop the bleeding.  That in turn narrows the arteries.  But the problem is not too much cholesterol and not too much salt, but the additives in table salt.

 Now I always thought that salt was salt.   So I looked on my box of IODIZED salt at home (a store brand).

Here are the ingredients listed.  They were listed all in upper case letters:


The additive of concern here is sodium silicoaluminate which is added to keep the salt from caking.

According to Wikipedia, Sodium silicoaluminate, may also be listed as:
Amorphous sodium aluminosilicate
sodium aluminosilicate
aluminium sodium salt,
aluminosilicic acid,
sodium salt,
sodium aluminium silicate,
aluminum sodium silicate
sodium silico aluminate

Note there are other additives that are used for non-caking as well.

I just bought some Kosher salt which had no additives.

NOTE: Many brands of Sea Salt ALSO have non-caking additive. So if you want to avoid this problem — read the label. (And maybe buy a salt grinder).

Now I looked at several places on the web which had arguments of sea salt vs. table salt vs. what ever other kind of salt someone was selling.

Nowhere did anyone mention the abrasion of arteries from table salt as the reason for high blood pressure as did Dr. Leonard Coldwell in the video

Whether this is true, I personally don’t know.  Let’s hear your opinion.

Salt is Good for You, Salt Additives Bad — 4 Comments

  1. I agree with the crushed silica effect
    I agree with the inflammation effect
    And their roles in heart disease.

    I would like to mention that any food that has been run through a factory process is likely to have been tampered with in some way.

    It’s always good to remember that men have been killed for saying the earth is not flat, that it is in fact rather roundish.

    The sickness and dispensing industry does not like competition.
    Take the disinformation campaign around the herb “blood root”, for example, which is all over the www. They made up this story about stuff called Cancema and said it eats noses up.
    That’s not even how blood root works. It is simply one of the ingredients in Black Salve that ulcerates the chitin that cancer hides behind, so that the immune system can detect said fungus and push it out.
    That’s all.
    I have used it a few times. And can tell you first hand that yes, I got rid of spots of skin cancer that way, and no, it does not eat or dissolve flesh.

    So it’s a good idea to realise that these few brave researchers and doctors out there are doing their very best to help people to heal.
    But it’s rather like farting against thunder because, motivated by a billion dollar market, those big boys are going to try and squash the little guys that speak the truth.
    Anything to make a few extra shekels at the cost of the goyim.

    This revelation just happened with me in Toronto, having seen the same video featuring Dr. Leonard Coldwell. I also read my Salt box ingredients and was surprised to find additives in Table salt. Having recently read articles about how it is the inflammation in our arteries that are often the cause of heart disease and stroke – not cholesterol – this information about salt makes total sense to me. While the articles I had read were focusing on the type of carbohydrates and balance of Omega 6 & 3 oils in our diets, they confirmed that abrasion is being caused in our arteries by our diet (and disinformation regarding the causes of inflammation).
    and this article at:
    featuring Dr. Dwight Lundell, where he states:
    “Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

    What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flourand all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

    Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red and nearly bleeding. you kept this up several times a day, every day for five years. If you could tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse with each repeated injury. This is a good way to visualize the inflammatory process that could be going on in your body right now.

    Regardless of where the inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation.

    While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with omega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.

    How does eating a simple sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you sick?

    Imagine spilling syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to drive sugar into each cell where it is stored for energy. If the cell is full and does not need glucose, it is rejected to avoid extra sugar gumming up the works.

    When your full cells reject the extra glucose, blood sugar rises producing more insulin and the glucose converts to stored fat.

    What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra sugar molecules attach to a variety of proteins that in turn injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.
    While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator — inflammation in their arteries.”

    As a result of this combined information, I will now be looking into reducing my family’s intake of processed table salt, switching to more pure dietary salts and balancing our omega 6 & 3 oil intakes.

    While I am suspicious of most additives (aluminum should certainly be avoided), and have NO faith in the FDA and minimal in traditional medicine, the concept that “the ‘sand’ causes abrasion in the arteries and they start to bleed” sounds preposterous to me. Why? Not because of potential internal damage to arteries from consuming wrong substances which your body “patches” with cholesterol, which I believe DOES happen. But the concept of sand passing through the digestive system into the blood seems absurd. Dogs regularly eat things off the grounds, licking up and swallowing plenty of sand, as do many other animals. It is substances which are dissolved into the blood stream which cause problems (e.g. high quantities of refined sugar, prescription medications, etc.). Without credible evidence that “sand” gets directly into the blood stream, I wouldn’t have enough confidence in anything he says to bother wasting my time listening anything he says.

  4. Before believing any of Dr Leonard Coldwell’s claims, do some research. Google “QUACK – Leonard Coldwell – CANCER CURE SCAM”. Better safe than sorry!
