In this case its the meme that less salt is important to good health. I suspected this was bullshit a long time ago, and I am glad to see my suspicions vindicated. Two things that are critical to balanced brain chemistry and to avoid depression are salt and sunlight. We have been told for decades to consume less salt and stay out of the sun because of dubious claims that one causes heart problems and the other cancer. I called bullshit on both decades ago. Heart problems and cancer are both genetic, and from what the medical field is discovering now, possibly even caused by viruses.
I have never had any form of depression because I do not hide from the sun nor avoid salt. I know a ton of people that avoid the sun like they are vampires and will not touch salt because of their fear of heart damage. Practically every one of them is a basket case, always battling depression, and quite a few are even suicidal. Once even took her own life. Fuck that. Eat salt, like with everything else in moderation, and be happy. Give them a few more years and they will actually tell us salt is essential.
Remember the whole egg fiasco and how that played out? I do. Eggs are good. Eggs are going to kill you! Eggs might not be so bad. Eggs are awesome for you! The beauty of real science is that if you make a claim and the facts do not bere out, we get to toss your idiotic claim out of the window. Real science that is. Not that consensus shit.
