It sounds so sensible in Gina Kolata’s June 4 New York Times piece… “A group of eminent researchers, including the former head of the Food and Drug Administration, has suggested a way to resolve science’s so-called salt wars. They want to conduct an immense trial of salt intake with incarcerated inmates, whose diets could be tightly controlled.”

The graphic accompanying Kolata’s piece online is a total falsification of reality.

Long before Peter Lurie MD, went to work for the FDA, The Lancet published this letter from him: US Exceptionalism Comes to Research Ethics… Lurie is now president of the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
