The War Over Salt

This irritates the hell out of me. I am on medication that causes me to waste sodium. As a result, I need extra salt in my diet -- and absolutely must avoid potassium-based salt alternatives. I use a lot of salt in my food, and (conveniently) I like it that way, too.

Why should my diet be altered because of someone else's medical condition? Make people be responsible for their own dietary management; stop trying to do it for them. I don't want to have to get a prescription for salt.
