The work to help the less privileged is a noble cause; thanks for being involved in trying to make conditions better for them.

I don't have the studies you request but I respond anyway because I think you're missing a bigger point.

80/10/10 is about optimal diet under optimal conditions. Most of us that have circumstances that allow the reading of the 80/10/10 book or browse here and learn have luxuries beyond bare survival. To address your stated concern, Dr. D has frequently stated very clearly that no ideology or philosophy is worth dying for. Under conditions where ideal foods are not available or in medical emergencies, people must do what they can to survive. Ideally, we would consume neither inorganic salt nor plain water nor the two mixed together. But, if the choice is between nothing and saline, I'm first in line for the saline in that emergency situation. Anyone who fears a little salt in a saline drip while dying of dehydration has had a complete breakdown in common sense. Hopefully, someone like you will be around to help them through.
