Are we too hard on salt?

Salt.  So often when discussing high blood pressure we discuss limiting salt as one key action to be taken.  So now a new study is published which questions the significance of that effort.  There are serious issues that arise when reading this study about the selection of participants, structure of the study, and the conclusions drawn.  Here is an article from MedPageToday which includes some comments of mine, on video and in print, along with a few other physicians who appear to agree. Perhaps we should take this study with a grain of salt.
