Statistics show that the majority of people has a high blood pressure. In that sense, reducing your salt intake is a good general advice.
That’s exactly what I meant.
Oh, I thought you intended saying the exact opposite, because your previous sentence was “This is a typical classical medicine misconception”.
So it looks like we agree on this point.

Keep in mind that humans evolved in an environment where salt was quite scarce. So did our ancestors, so our bodies have adapted to very little salt intake. The amount of salt we tend to consume nowadays is absolutely unnatural.
Unless you have adrenal problems like most people here. People with adrenal dysfunction have the inability to hold onto sodium.I would not increase my sodium (salt) intake unless I had a confirmed inability to hold onto sodium. I would definitely have my sodium levels tested before increasing my salt intake!
