Well, you present the point fairly well about the people stirring up debate type issues and then you persist in pushing the salt point of view. And that's what it is and what creates so much discord, IMO, on these discussions. People who think because they have read a thing or two and are now so knowledgeable as to need to put everyone else on notice as to what they 'should' be doing or thinking. That attitude is not only rather arrogant, but also ignorant of the reality that in the natural healing or alternative medicine world, one can easily go around and around for many years taking in all the points of view and sales/marketing promo strategies before you get to any real point of discernment or wisdom; and you really have to earn that, or be so naturally common sensical and intuitive that you bypass a lot of the hard struggle through the morass of opinionated and loud voices that are so certain of their 'truth', yet only contain a small bit of 'it', and that influence may be a destructive force for years to come.
Here's a favourite quote by ee cummings; " the people sit in a circle and suppose, while the secret sits in the middle and knows"
That to me speaks to the need of a little learned humility and the 'beginner mind' so often lacking in the 'tude' of people who just don't know, either how little they know; or how far they have to go.
The salt 'warnings', to me belong on a salt debate group, make one up if it's so important....
