Can you explain how people in hospitals routinely recieve an average saline drip of 3 liters of 0.9% sodium chloride per day, or 27 grams plus a minimum of 6 grams from their food for a total of 33 grams of salt a day, yet their blood pressure, taken every 4 - 6 hours, remains perfectly flat? The level of 33 grams per day is between 5 and 8 times the recommended amount in the 2010 US Dietary Guidelines!
