Risks of too little sodium are a valid concern only at levels massively below mean intake in the U.S., while the harms of excess are with us right now.

In the meantime, the subtle but devastating effects of high-sodium diets will continue to take the lives of tens of thousands of people and waste billions of dollars annually.
