Australia is an arid land and we have some of the shallowest top soil - this combined with bad farming practices means that there isn't enough natural iodine in foods, especially after being boiled or cooked in most other ways - so I don't think we should get so hung up about reducing our salt intake. If you eat well, then your body can handle the salt.
That's it, I am not fanatical about food, i just try to eat whole foods as opposed to processed - the change I made with salt is that I don't use it in the cooking, I add it at the table, therefore I'm only using it to taste whereas previously I added it while cooking and again at the table - salt maniac :)

A few years ago my son worked at a fruit preserving company, after what he told me about the quality of the fruit used in tinned products for the Australian market and the processing methods, I never bought it again - it is rubbish and we pay quite a lot of money for this item in the supermarkets.

Nuts can help lower cholesterol - walnuts and almonds in particular are very healthy, walnuts are high in natural omega-3.
