Naples, FL- The ever popular “for Dummies” series of books, a Wiley brand, now has a new edition dedicated to explaining the many benefits of salt in our daily lives. “Salt for Dummies” is a friendly and easy to read guide to all things salt. Readers can find out what it’s made of, where it comes from, how it’s used, how it affects your health, and more.
In the “Salt 101” section, readers can discover the basics of salt, including how it’s used in food safety and production, agriculture, road safety, and home maintenance. This includes how salt can help your home’s plumbing and appliances work more efficiently.
The “Here’s to your health!” section features straight talk about salt and how much you should eat as well as explaining salt’s role in helping people maintain proper hydration. This chapter helps readers learn about the many benefits of salt and the ways salt can improve their health. It also helps readers make sure they are getting enough salt in their diet to ensure good health, and understand the risks of having too little salt.
The “Bon appétit!” section encourages healthy eating by salting veggies and bitter greens to make them taste better. It also explains the use of salt to preserve foods and aid in fermentation.
“We are very pleased to be able to make this informative publication available for free online. Giving people access to accurate information about salt and its many uses and benefits is vitally important especially in light of ongoing and misguided criticism of the effect of salt on health. New research on salt and health has continued to advise against the need for population wide sodium reduction strategies, finding that most people already consume well within the healthy range of salt,” said Lori Roman, President of the Salt Institute.
“Salt for Dummies” is now available for free online at www.saltinstitute.org/2017/07/18/salt-for-dummies/.
The Salt Institute is a North American based non-profit trade association dedicated to advancing the many benefits of salt, particularly to ensure winter roadway safety, quality water and healthy nutrition.
