Because of our massive annual intake, whenever nutritionists and doctors talk about salt, they usually warn against a possible link between pver- consumptkm and hypertension and other conditions. •• , But, many people forget that salt is more than a seasoning; sodium and choloride, which make up common table salt, are essential nutrients. Sodium is found in many foods, par- licularly animal products and certain vegetables. But chloride is less available, although it is present in meats, milk, and eggs. A diet high in grains, which the majority of the world's population has consumed throughout history, may be low in both sodium and chloride unless table salt is added. are lost in the wilderness without water. Your body wiU continue to lose moisture, and gradually the extracellular fluid will become highly concentrated, principally with sodium. Osmosis then drives water out of the cells to rebalance .the mineral concentration, and the cells shrink, becoming dehydrated. Without water to replenish the fluids, death soon follows. Or, suppose you are running a long-distance race on a hot day, or performing some other vigorous physical activity. You wfll sweat away a lot of body- water, sodium and chloride. If you then, drink copiously, you will more than replace the lost water, but the intracellular fluid becomes too concentrated. The cells will take in. more water and expand. You may then develop a form of cramps known as "stokers' disease," m 84 46. .03 74 59 .30 Charles E.

(JURIES TRM*. tertwen PUKM VALLEY STATE BANK. (Jerk the vital ro!e of salt -Wars have been fought over the control of salt deposits. Renaissance Venice owed a large-part of its wealth to the salt harvested from its lagoons. To the Greeks and Romans, salt was as good as gold, which is why we still say a person is "worth his salt." The word "salary" is from the Latin word "salarium," which was the money given soldiers to buy salt. What is the precise role of salt in the body? Sodium and" chloride, along with body water and other minerals, especially potassium, are essential in maintaining the body's internal equilibrium. Here is how it works: If you weigh about 120 pounds, your body contains three to Four ounces of sodium and less than two ounces of chloride. Most of the chloride, and more than half the sodium, is carried in the extracellular fluid, which bathes every cell. This is often referred to as our "internal sea" because its mineral content so closely resembles the primeval oceans from which our aquatic ancestors originated. The fluid inside the cells, however, is different, and here potassium is the chief mineral. Together, these minerals maintain the acid-alkaline (base) balance. Cells function best when they are in a near neutral medium. Even though the diet may vary, the acid-base balance must stay near its normal value or the person will die. Chloride, phosphorus and sulfur all are acid-forming elements, while sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium all form bases. If you eat a well-rounded diet, you will consume adequate amounts of these minerals, which are so essential to maintaining the acid-base balance. But the body has elaborate means of adjusting to the vagaries of even a normal diet. This is one of the main functions of the kidneys, which dispose of excessive acidic or alkaline substances by excreting them in the urine. Sodium is especially important in maintaining the concentration of minerals in the 'extracellular fluids, which is essential for proper function of the muscles and nerves. (Potassium plays a similar role for intracellular fluids.) Normally, the balanced concentration of minerals on both sides of Ihe cellular membranes keeps up an even osmoli? pressure, which enables water and other nutrients to move into the cells, and waste products to move out. Suppose, however, that you In this case, extra salt will be needed to redress the balance. Within a few days of such activity, the body will adjust by excreting low-salt sweat and urine, and the additional salt intake is no longer necessary. Organic conditions, such as liver or kidney disease or hormonal imbalances, can cause salt retention, which, in turn, means that water is retained to dilute the ex- tracellular fluid, causing edema. This is why cutting back on salt often helps dieters to lose weight steadily, because the body is less Likely to retain water. As you can see, sodium and chloride are indeed essential to life. But, as with all nutrients, too much of a good thing is detrimental to health. If you consume about a quarter teaspoon of salt a day, you will get all Ihe sodium arid chloride your body requires. To avoid overconsumption, pass up the salt shaker and learn to season with herbs, vinegars, lemon, peppers and other condiments. The key to keeping your weight under control is to learn the caloric content of different foods in different portions. Dr. Mayer's Guide to Low Calorie Foods gives you this information, with a nutritional guide to maintain your health while dieting.
