Ninety degree weather has gotten people thinking about ice cream. I received an email from Sarma at Pure Food & Wine and she's making sure every knows about their One Lucky Duck Ice Cream special; they'll even ship it to you overnight in ice packs! I'm partial to watermelon, but it's good to know that raw foodists don't have to go without the creamy good stuff.
My approach to health is probably 180 degrees opposite from the AMA's approach, but I applaud their suggestion that salty foods should be labeled as such. "The measure also calls for the AMA to ask the Food and Drug Administration to revoke salt's status as a food that is "generally recognized as safe," known as "GRAS" in the industry. GRAS food includes such staples as sugar and pepper." Bravo!
Dr. Herbert Shelton, in Superior Nutrition, writes "Sodium Chloride is at all times and under all circumstances, non-usable;...a poison. It is not metabolized as are organic salts. It never becomes a part of any of the bodies tissues."
David Klein, in "Your Natural Diet: Alive Raw Foods", responds to a question regarding sea salt: "The major component of sea salt is sodium chloride. Sea salt is touted as being healthier than table salt because the former has more trace minerals and the latter is heat processed. Nontheless, mineral salts in inorganic form are extremely toxic- they impair all of our metabolic and cellular functions."
Our natural raw foods contain organic salts in a form that is perfect for our bodies.
