Innocent looking chips could raise blood pressure?

Post by abbby » Tue, 15 Sep 2020 3:22 pm

Could those innocent looking potato chips raise blood pressure? Been having those during my late night snacks, and realised the blood pressure's higher than usual. Hadn't been it for a long time and did not have a spike either. :???:

Nasty...the salt content in the chips and how it causes a spike.

Salt. If you eat chips drink some water at least but it will barely help.

Nonsense, Salt does not raise BP. This kind of confident mumbo jumbo is why most people cannot cure or reverse BP or Diabetes.

Read this book - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Why-We-Get-Sic ... 0679746749

Too much carb n sugar raise Insulin which over time results in Insulin Resistance. This results is effecting a hormone which results in high retention of water n salt on body. Water retention increases BP.

Reducing Carb and Sugar is what reverses BP and Sugar issues. Just bcus people with high BP have high salt retention, does not mean Salt causes BP.

Unless u guys have done research on why salt causes BP, don't just write such wrong information which is perpetuated over decades with 100% confidence.

BP , Diabetes are all reversible if u eat sensibly. And its not salt, its the potato and the vegetable oil in ur chips.

Not everyone, including the WHO, agrees with you.

Maybe. A few years back the sugar industry in the UK were promoting the health benefits of increased sugar consumption. I guess the same as the tobacco companies a generation or so back. Both trying to sell more product using 'health benefits' as a marketing ploy.

The point being that there is a lot of pseudo nonsense that makes it difficult for the layman to get a true picture of what is right and wrong. And these days social media makes the whole thing worse. People will believe something written by some muppet on FB and disbelieve the actual experts.

My approach has always been that moderation in anything is a good thing.

i have read so many cases where peopel got off BP pills by cutting carbs . however , no one cures Bp by cutting salt . thats why its considered chronic.

same for diabetes . diet alone puts it in remission.

most of what i said is being simaif by MDs too but they r in minority who read , think and question the irony that nothing gets cured with conventional wisdom .

yes people with high Bp have high salt retention buy that is a consequnce of Insulin resistance that leads to hormonal dysfunction . cutting carbs reverses it and u lose water n salt thus reducing BP .

presnece of salt does not imply salt is causing bP . its correlation not causation
