Sodium restriction is today the most widely publicized non-medication recommendation for heart disease and stroke prevention. Unfortunately, this advice has proven ineffective.

If the question is "should we limit our intake of salt" I say yes only if your body has a hard time getting rid of it.
The Cochrane Collaboration is an independent nonprofit organization consisting of a group of over 28,000 volunteers in more than 100 countries. The collaboration was formed in response to a felt need to organize medical research information in a systematic way. Such organized information constitutes Evidence. Evidence is required to make effective health care decisions and to understand where more research is actually needed.
The Collaboration aims to provide compiled scientific evidence to aid well informed health care decisions. It conducts Systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health care interventions and tries to disseminate the results and conclusions derived from them. A few more recent reviews have also studied the results of non-randomized, observational studies. The systematic reviews are published in the Cochrane Library.

I'm still of the opinion that too much salt is bad for you, I don't really care what one doctor says.

Doesn't a high salt diet lead to renal failure?
