Aside from the story being absolutely horrendous, did anybody else realize you can die of a salt overdose? I'd of thought it would just make you very ill.

The effects of salt in the body are mostly linked to sodium: one gram of salt contains about 400 mg of sodium. ... The excess of sodium, promotes hypertension, especially in people predisposed.
Personally, I try to eliminate it.

if you injest too much salt you will die it wont be from hypertension either ;-)

Yes you can die. Same with potassium. Long ago for dryout folks raised up potassium to drop salt....heart flops. Cant spark without that balance

Fuck that sounds horrible. Seeing as the sodium/potassium balance is what keeps our heart beating it makes sense you can overdose but what a shitty way to go. Btw that’s over 4 tablespoons of salt.

Wife and I got some fast food burgers yesterday between cutting 3 lawns out in the heat. The meat was way overseasoned, too much salt. We were both starving and in need of energy to continue so we ate them anyway and both felt crappy the rest of the day despite drinking several powerade and body armour drinks between us. She cooks pretty low sodium so we aren't use to that much salt.

Yeh bud, there's a fine line between it making food taste awesome and then too much of it and it making you feel ill lol Wonder how much these people who nearly drown in the sea take in when they end up taking in a load of seawater!

Oh yeah, it hit us. Her fingers swole so bad she had to take her rings off, massive indentions in her fingers. I bloat in my chest and face for whatever reason. Chest looks great unless I eat a bunch of salt then it looks saggy, lol. And my cheeks puff out like crazy. Stay away from the mirror!
