    I thought this was all settled by the SALT talks during the '80s.

    Coming soon, tax on foods that don't meet the federal salt test. Gotta pay for that health care bill.

    I love the thick salt crust on the prime rib fat.

    I order my McDonalds french fries with no salt. That way they have to cook a new batch. I then douse them with salt.

    How about a little course Kosher salt on top of the chicken pie crust? mmmm

    You think salt on the rim of a margarita glass is good? Try it on a bloody mary...

    This is all a bunch of BS anyway. Just don't eat too much highly processed food. Back in the "old day" eating out was an occasional treat. Sodas? Maybe one from the ice cream man on allowance day and perhaps a Coke at the matinee on Saturday. We usually had water, milk, ice tea or Kool-Aid.

    I don't get this mentality where people buy these giant sodas in half-gallon cups at the C-stores. It's crazy.

    :)

    I used to work in fast food, and that is exactly what people used to do. I can't blame them either; there's nothing worse than a soggy fry!

    I don't mind the salt in restaurant; it's simply a treat. Unless one has a medical condition, it's not going to hurt once in a while, like a night out. It will flush itself out of one's system fairly quickly. It becomes problematic when it is a daily habit.
