76749, you know I respect you and also I do not have any desire to get involved in an argument with you...
Just for the sake of some objectivity, I would like to point out, that the thread was moved to the Debate forum because it clearly turned into a debate... I have no problem with that...
Now I am the last person to indulge in any cult of personality and can assure you,
I am not star-struck by Jim Humble in any way (and am not star-struck by any "leader" personality, period)... yet I have referred to him in my posts repeatedly for a very obvious reason.
He is the only one that we know of, who has any long-term exposure and experience with human consumption of sodium chloride in the first place.
We cannot claim (thank god), that any "government sponsored official scientific study has been conducted" and no university has taken up the task yet. What we have so far, is (yeah, sorry) JIM HUMBLE's experience and the results of what we ourselves are experimenting with as we speak.
So until we have any more to go on, we probably will keep referring to JH as an authority on the subject (no matter how distasteful it might seem).
