Salty eyes

Someone recently told me that you can tell whether you are eating too much salt if your sweat burns your eyes. I found this interesting because I thought every person’s sweat burned his/her eyes, but after asking around, this apparently is not so.

Because of this and a documentary I saw about the risks of salt intake, I recently started loosely tracking how much sodium I was consuming. Thus far, I’ve been kind of surprised in the high amount of sodium in some innocent things like salsa, which I love.

While I was clicking around, I found this link from the Salt Institute. According to them, you can eat as much salt as you want. Talk about checking your sources!

    The “salty eye test” is not a true medical test, but really salty sweat may be an indicator of too much salt.
