the salt advised,recommended is
2300milligrams of sodium per day.[including all that is in preservatives-- sodium metabisulphite etc and so on.]
this will work out to one teaspoon a day of salt=sodium chloride.ie, 5ml
of sodium chloride.
if you go by atomic weights of sodium and chlorine remember the density of salt .otherwise you will be in trouble in calculation..
but elderly people,
it need be half a tea spoon a day.
in general people are taking more than 1 and half a teaspoon a day.
how to get rid of the pinch measure?
calculate the the total sodium chloride per MONTH for the family and keep so much only
on the window sill of kitchen.

if you want more? next month please.
