A dash of healthier salt, and no app is needed!

  How refreshing to hear about a product that’s not an app or yet another social network but a physical thing. It seems that the business pages only cover the latest digital delight invented by a 23-year-old graduate of Stanford.

Here is something real called,  called “Salt for Life’’,  distributed by Nu-Tek Food Science LLC. It’s a blend of sea salt and potassium and has 70 percent less sodium than table salt; excessive sodium intake is associated with various health problems, particularly heart disease, about which I have more than a passing familiarity. I have no financial stake in this product, but do predict that these sorts of products will be bigger and bigger with the aging of the population and attempts to curb health-care costs.
