Salt is as addictive as smoking.
The slight difference, which nobody seems to have noticed, is that you don't die if you run out of cigarettes.
But hey, I am happy for all the antismokers to eradicate all salt from their diets. I will be delighted to encourage them in this venture, and to explain to them how deadly the white powder is. It even looks like heroin! Oh, it MUST be evil! Studies have shown it to be so.
The complete eradication of salt from these people's diets will improve my retirement years immensely. Something to work towards, definitely.
