I find it amusing how there are always people that deny medical facts because of something they read on the Internet or because it doesn't fit with their lifestyle.
Salt clearly raises blood pressure. Salt retains water, more salt means more water, which raises pressure. (Simplified!)
I had high blood pressure for a short period, I cut any added salt from my diet and it dropped immediately, no other change to my diet. Read other stories on this site about similar experiences.
If you find your food needs more salt, it probably means you're not a very good cook :)
