    I didn't bother to read your link, but "they" have been saying for decades that salt will kill you.

    Nothing new about that for anyone who has been paying attention.

    It's not salt, it's excess salt. And even then it's really more a combination of too little water and too much salt, as far as most diets go.

    That said, yes, if it is your desire, you should be free to do as you please, but I am free to deny medical care to you to the extent it cost me money or causes people who need care through no fault of their own. (Assuming it is a scarce resource, and/or is eventually paid for by insurance or taxes)

    It's marginally analogous to any sort of over consumption, in that doing so causes ripples which make a resource unavailable for others who truly need it. The resource being salt or healthcare or cemetery space. ;-)

    Well, there is "no fault of their own" unless you are talking about getting into an accident that's not your fault.

    Water is deadly too

    Soldiers have died from drinking too much water while waiting for the monthly piss test.

    Salt could have saved them

    Not liberal. And I'm not advocating that we restrict salt with a Bloombergian ban, only pointing out that making choices (which we should be free to make) does impact others.

    I agree we should get rid of piss tests because people have died due to the testing.

    +1 Its this type of viewpoint that they also use to support insurance mandate gun control bills .. the cost to society regarding gunshot treatments.

    Mind you 99% of those shot are criminals that are not going to get insurance ... so the effect of the bills will be zip..but never mind that, look the other way !

    Not true.

    Over half the people who have ever lived are alive today. Empirically speaking, you have less than a 50-50 chance of dying.

    As NaCl is water soluble, indeed one mainly just needs to increase their water consumption if they increase their salt consumption. On the contrary, you will also die if you drink too much water and don't eat enough salt!

    I did 21 years in the Army, and was also one of the guys in charge of administrating the pee tests. I have heard of soldiers drinking too much water and dying, but not waiting to do a pee test.

    I don't accept your statistics. In 100 years (unless science finds a way to stop the aging process) everyone alive right now except maybe 0.000000000001% will be dead. All 6 billion people. For this to remain true the population would have to double every generation which doesn't happen. Considering the modern human evolved around 200,000 years ago and the relatively short life expectancies up until the late 1900's we wouldn't be able to move if populations effectively doubled every generation to keep up with the death toll being 50% of the current population.

    When you have can only piss test x number of people per hour and you have 5x people drinking water waiting to pee in the cup and reach a cannot hold it point they are allowed in to drain 'normal' and then drink more water to get back in line.

    Believing all the various health advices is what kills you.

    From the mid-eighties through roughly 2000 it was an article of faith in the health world that eggs were bad for you because they had (gasp) cholesterol. Then, wonder of wonders, eggs were "discovered" to be good for you and the cholesterol not such a big deal. Yeah, right. They didn't know what they were talking about in the first instance, or over-hyped the data. I gave up paying attention.

    I well remember being a little kid walking home from school in the early 1970's and being all depressed because of the ice age sure to come from pollution--according to the yammering know-it-alls, anyway. Well, I grew up and forgot all about it. Then came the global warming hysteria, from the same pollution no less. Wait a minute. First it was global freezing from pollution, then it was global warming from pollution. Nope. They scared and depressed this little kid once when he was dumb enough to fall for it. Never again.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    salt as a weapon......A Salt Weapons.

    A miniaturized shotgun effect is generated through this ingenious design. Ordinary table salt is utilized as a lethal projectile with accuracy range of within 3 feet. Bugs will remain whole for easy clean up.
    NO LICENSES, NO LIMITS, NO BATTERIES
    Insect hunting as sport has entered the 21st century with this fun, new non-toxic device.


    Don't tell feinstein about this.
