Hi Dr Graham,
Thank you for your time in addressing my concerns.

Here are three quotes from your book:

"Plain table salt is so toxic that even when
extremely diluted, as it is in sea water, it is
still deadly"

"Extracted sodium chloride, in any form is an
irritant and is toxic to the body."

"We must take care to distinguish here between
extracted sodium chloride "salt" (which is deadly),
and the sodium and other salts that occur naturally
and abundantly in whole plant foods"

These are statements that do not entirely fit your
explanation that: "What I said in The 80/10/10 Diet
is that adding salt to your food is
counterproductive, that we can get exactly the
correct quantity of sodium and chloride from our
food."

I would certainly address the fact that
"counterproductive" does not equate to your more
actual and somewhat extremist statements about
deadly toxicity.

I agree that many people indeed die from salt
related over consumption. Again we are talking over
consumption, not straight out toxicity as you are
actually stated.

Nonetheless, I wish to re-direct closely to the
second quote: "Extracted sodium chloride, in any
form is an irritant and is toxic to the body."

This is not true in practice, and I am attempting to
find the basis for your claim. Extracted sodium
chloride is not an irritant and toxic, if it was
then a saline drip or ORS solutions would kill
people in their most weakest and ill state. In
practice this statement simply does not add up to
what is occurring in hospitals and other places of
health based assistance throughout the world. In my
experience anyway.

This is why I have my overall concern. Someone who
reads your statement that "Extracted sodium
chloride, in any form is an irritant and is toxic to
the body" may possibly choose to deny themselves
life saving treatment involving this substance in
the event of taking your book's statement literally.
Perhaps you were not attempting to be literal, but
whilst you suggest I am missing the point, I am not
actually. You agreed with Randall's post, therefore
you do agree that in an emergency situation sodium
chloride in its extracted form is beneficial. This
is in complete contrast to that quote in your book
that "in any form" it is toxic and irritating.

Thanks for further consideration of my concern.
