Is salt an acquired taste?

Have you heard of Salting to death?

CDC says humans are consuming too much salt.

Excess salt consumption is said to be from eating processed food.

American Heart Association recommends less than a teaspoon of salt (2300 mg per day).If you ask me you can bring down this level further.

    I think salt is definitely an acquired taste (like sugar in tea) you crave what you get used to. I rarely add salt to food and really do notice if salt has bee added.

    I often marvel at people who salt food before tasting it, as though it’s an automatic movement before raising their fork. More a habit than an acquired taste, I think.

    On Saturday, we dip a piece of challah in salt to show our faith in the eternity of life because salt is the only natural substance that doesn’t spoil or rot, yet prevents food from spoiling or rotting.
    Having said that, I agree with you, dear Dr Sridhar, regarding the dangers of salt to our health.

        I admit to my ignorance: I had to Google Khalil Gibran The quote is great! Now I have to read The Prophet that brought him fame, as well as his other books.
        Thank you so much for increasing my knowledge, dear Philo!
