Is Salt Healthy?

We hounds consume a fair amount of salt, from dishes prepared by chefs, cooks, and selves. We probably don't get much from snack foods or prepared commercial trays.
How safe is this dietary salt?
My doctor says moderation is the key; but you can't say that to a chef.
When I google dietary salt, it is easy to find studies that tear the anti-salt (heart disease) studies to shreds.
Is my doctor behind the times?
Can I consume as much salt as my grandparents?
