Praise

“With wit and ease, Jacobson takes readers through the basics (how much salt we eat, where we get it, and the health concerns connected with it) and the minutiae (a take-down of the so-called “sodium sceptics” and the scant if promising progress of regulation from Congress) to offer a clear picture of what consumers should do when we sit down for our next meal.”
– Civil Eats

“In his new book, Salt Wars, scientist Michael F. Jacobson makes a compelling argument that salt presents a singular threat to life and finance… One of the most important takeaways of Salt Wars, though, has little to do with salt, although it may well raise your blood pressure. Sodium wars are just one more example of how effective modern propaganda tactics can be in our post-fact world.” 
– The Washington Post Book World
