Should we be adding salt?

brodie9930 | Dec 10, 201409:29 AM

Through-out my high school year and then attending a college program in cooking, I had learned that salt is added to almost everything.
In high school during, "Food and Nutrition" class, I was taught that salt is the #1 worst food additive in the world and that it is found in large amounts in everything that is bought at stores and restaurants.
But then in college I was taught that salt is good when needing to add a bit of flavor. What is up with that? In today's society we are more concerned about our health than ever. Always wanting to look the very best and going on these extreme diets, only to learn that they don't work. But what about salt? We still eat it even though we want to be healthy. Yes our body does need salt but we already get enough of it from everyday food like fruits and vegetables and natural salt. Too much is bad for you, but how much is too much?
What do you think is it good or is it bad?
