People actually die very quick when they do not have enough salt - hyponatremia, when runners only drink water and take no salt - they just collapse and die. So, better not tell people to cut salt out. Water does have no salt, fruits and veggies have no salt, raw meat has very little salt. And if you boil everything together there is still no salt in them. So, better to add some salt to this stew than getting the salt from chips and snacks.
