Assemblyman Felix Ortiz (D-Brooklyn the D standing for the title in the title, if you catch my drift) has actually introduced a bill that would totally eliminate the use of salt in all NY restaurants! Salt, as in “salt of the earth”, an absolutely and unequivocally essential dietary ingredient!
Yes, in place of proper health care, overpaid oafs are now introducing legislation that, if followed religiously by each and every citizen, would result in death on a massive scale.
This kind of crap legislation is no doubt a bone thrown to the legislation’s friends, the operators of fast food vomitoriums and the industrial crap food people: Around 75 per cent of the salt in our diet comes from processed foods, according to the Better Health Channel.
Obviously, if restaurants and home cooks didn’t salt food properly, it would make the crap served at these houses of ill nutrition and from plastic packages you buy in the supermarket taste much better than anything natural one could procure to eat. Hurray! Victory for bad taste!
Here’s how you die when your body runs out of salt, according to the Better Health Channel.
Hyponatremia is a condition that occurs when the sodium in your blood falls below the normal range of 135–145 milliequivalents per litre (mEq/L). In severe cases, low sodium levels in the body can lead to muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Eventually lack of salt can lead to shock, coma and death.
Shock, coma, death. Right there in the legislation. Read more from A Poor Man’s Feast: A Proposed Salt Bill and get a nice recipe for sea bass cooked in a mountain of salt, the best way to gently heat your branzino.
