Salt Sensitivity In Menopausal Women & Hypertension
Here's an article to get you watching that salt shaker.  yeah http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_27076.html
This study says that a "salt sensitivity" in some people leads to hypertension - they're now saying that hormonal changes with menopause may help contribute to a "salt sensitivity" as well - this may be something to watch!
 
Some say this is not the case and that this study sends out the wrong signals.
 
So check this one out and let us know what you think!!
 
Hugs, Teri tongue

Salt/Sodium

"Sodium occurs naturally in most foods. The most common form of sodium is sodium chloride, which is table salt. Milk, beets, and celery also naturally contain sodium, as does drinking water, although the amount varies depending on the source.Sodium is also added to various food products. Some of these added forms are monosodium glutamate, sodium nitrite, sodium saccharin, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), and sodium benzoate. These are ingredients in condiments and seasonings such as Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, onion salt, garlic salt, and bouillon cubes.Processed meats, such as bacon, sausage, and ham, and canned soups and vegetables are all examples of foods that contain added sodium.  Fast Foods are generally very high in sodium."
