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:
SALT AND SODIUM SILICOALUMINATE, DEXTROSE, POTASSIUM IODINE 0.006%, AND SODIUM BICARBONATE
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
aluminium 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.
