Many studies that show low sodium to be a problem are flawed meta-analysis studies that are paid for by the salt industry.People who eat less salt often do so because they are already sick(often with severe hypertension),so its easy to show a correlation between low sodium intake and health problems.

Very few will go on a low sodium diet just for prevention.They do so because of a problem.This is something to keep in mind when evaluating studies that conclude too little sodium is harmful and that low sodium diets are harmful.
