(BPT) - An ever increasing body of academic research is showing that the current level of salt Americans consume is not only perfectly healthy but that adopting low-salt recommendations will actually harm people.

This week was a hard one. I lost one more pound since last week's column (up to 22 of the 40 I set out to lose).
