I think that Jason is the only speaker who can keep me from looking at the timer because I am so fixated on what he has to say. And the surprise is that I already knew the general direction that he went in. No surprise to me, other than the fact that I was so fixated that I hardly looked at the timer.

Any comments Dr, Fung, on the articles below debunking the noted study, saying patients studied had too poor of health?

I consume 4-5 grams of salt daily (add lots of pink Himalayan to everything as I only have 3 hour feeding window daily).
My blood pressure has improved in past year on LCHF keto.

Dear Dr. Fung, as a swede and father of a 10 month old baby I constanlty hear the danngers of putting salt into childrens food. Is there any truth to that or is it based on the same misconception you present in this video? Best regards,

Peter Sjögren
