The Nanny State in New York may be officially moving beyond parody with a proposal to ban the use of salt in restaurants.
What’s next from Assemblyman Ortiz? How about regulators at swimming pools ensuring people don’t swim within 30 minutes of eating? Levying a fine on anyone who snacks before dinner? Establishing a squad of “Floss Police”?
NB: I have it on good authority that the injunction about waiting 30 minutes to go swimming after a meal is an old wive’s tale.
While the claim that the body regulates its own sodium input has plausibility, I’m skeptical on that claim mostly since one study doesn’t mean a lot. But it’s clear from this post at SBM that the war on salt is on, at best, shaky scientific ground.
And Ortiz is nuttier than a jar of Planter’s.
