    First Attestation
    I was reading a book called Homeopathic Cell Salt Remedies.
    It did not establish salt as a contributor to High Blood Pressure.

    Second Attestation

    Remember Sys over Dias or Sys/Dias.

    According to one meta-analysis cited in the review, higher sugar intake significantly increased systolic blood pressure (6.9 mm Hg, or 7.6 mm Hg when industry-financed studies were excluded) and diastolic blood pressure (5.6 mm Hg, or 6.1 mm Hg when industry studies weren’t considered) when compared to diets with lower sugar consumption. The review article also notes that for some individuals, a high-sugar diet caused rises in blood pressure after just a few weeks.

    But here is perhaps the most sobering statistic of all: Individuals who consumed between 10 percent and 24.9 percent of their calories from added sugars had a 30 percent increased risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease; those who consumed 25 percent or more of their calories from added sugars faced an almost threefold risk.

    But I hate Pink Himalayan Sea Salt because it's too gritty.

    Normal Blood Pressure 115 / 75
    Prehypertension 120 / 80
    Stage 1 hypertension 140 / 90
    Stage 2 Hypertension 160 / 100

    Some people are trying 500-1500 mg of Magnesium per day to help with hypertension.

    My understanding is that for a healthy person, salt does no harm. Your body increases its water retention to keep PH at proper levels and then discards the excess water and salt through the urine. If, however, you have high blood pressure or are diabetic, or pre-diabetic, the retention of the water raises the blood pressure further to what may be dangerous levels. If your blood pressure is normal, salt is safe. Even if the normal blood pressure is on target because of blood pressure medicine.
