Episode from the Flemish series OverLeven. Since science discovered that the use of salt raises our blood pressure and exposes us to cardiovascular diseases, salt has become a dirty word. In the meantime, however, studies have shown that a diet with too little salt can be dangerous. It can cause dementia and goitre. A recent study in Belgium revealed that nearly one in five adolescents has incipient goitre. Should salt be rehabilitated?
