I bought this book for my father who is a physician. He found the book very easy to read and well written. Dr Nerevetla's analogies were quite meaningful and nicely thought out. This book would be a great read for patients and physicians alike as it truly helps one understand why salt kills. As a physician myself I also enjoyed the book.

Thanks for writing this book! Great evidence-based information. Lots of helpful and reputable resources. Thanks for all the research. I will use in my nursing classes. I have already started quoting some of the evidence to the students I see in our health clinic, hoping to start them thinking early about the effects of adding salt.

I look forward to reading your new book.

This is a must read for everyone.! Package food companies and restaurants are kill us. We need to be proactive and fight so the large amounts of salt to be taken out of all of our foods. Stick with fresh, whole fruits and vegetables. Even our chicken and meats are injected with salt. Someone has a good lobbyist in Washington or how could our government allow this to continue knowing it is killing us. Actually the governments knows the problem with large amounts of salt and what it's doing to us.

I knew that salt was bad for me, but I didn't know how bad. Then I started working with Dr. Neravetla on his book Salt Kills. I may have been his writing coach, but he became my health coach. Now his book is convincing others to make lifesaving dietary changes. It's also attracting serious attention from some big names. Michael Connolly, President & CEO of Catholic Health Partners (CHP)--one of the largest health care systems in the country--said of Dr. Neravetla's Salt Kills:

"Extremely well researched, unquestionably persuasive, and a great contribution to the health and well being of the nation."

I couldn't agree more.

I bought salt kills from Amazon to have on my new iPad. it is a very easy read with incredible information. I plan to use that information to save me from a dismal retirement existence where all I do is go to doctors appointments take medications or even worse have surgeries and procedures to treat congestive heart failure. in my opinion doctor Neravetla's book salt kills could save thousands of lives if people really understood how dangerous salt is and that salt really does kill

****I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.**** Thank you Dr. Neravetla for allowing me to read and review your book! I was in no way compensated for my review, and my opinions are my own.

A bit of background

We found out my husband's grandfather needed a stent put in this last Halloween. When they went to put in the stent, they found so many blockages that they knew the stent was not the way to go, and they would need to perform open heart surgery. On November 1st, they performed a five-way bypass. The artery known as "the widowmaker" was 99% blocked. From what I understand, it's called the widowmaker because if it becomes abruptly and completely blocked, it will cause a massive heart attack that will likely lead to sudden death.

The day of the surgery

We were really lucky that my husband's grandfather is so active because otherwise, he might not have made it long enough for the surgery to even be an option. I went down to the hospital with my husband and my mother-in-law where we met up with my mother-in-law's brother and his wife. We got to see his grandfather before the surgery. It was a terribly long day - he's eighty-three, never had surgery or been hospitalized before. We worried about him going under the anesthesia, coming off the ventilator, and especially the recovery afterwards.

He is tougher than the doctors expected him to be, and his surgery took less time than they thought it would. He came off the ventilator sooner than they thought, and he was released from the hospital a couple days earlier than they thought. He came to stay with us for a couple of days, and then he stayed with my mother-in-law and her mother (who live across the street from us) until he was released to go home.

A sobering read during the early morning hours immediately before unexpected open-heart surgery! However, a careful re-reading after the operation shows how persuasive Dr. Neravetla's argument is.

The clear and precise language of Salt Kills states that, contrary to prevailing assumptions, salt is indeed a killer. Because excess salt causes high blood pressure, it not only is one of the root causes of cardiovascular diseases but also a major contributor to other health problems: asthma, obesity, stomach cancer, osteoporosis, dementia, and Alzheimer's.

The unpretentious language is supported by careful research, as well as an Action Plan and Frequent Questions. The proper response to Dr. Neravetla's book is to treat it as a prescription for more sensible shopping, cooking, and eating--a message of global significance.
