The Salt Institute has released a short animated video explaining the incredible background and international accomplishments of the scientist known as the Salt Guru.
"We hope this mini-biography makes it clear why the Salt Guru has always been, and always will be, a defender of scientific truth." said Morton Satin, the Salt Institute's Vice President of Science and Research, who is, in fact, the Salt Guru.
Wearing a white lab coat and armed only with scientific knowledge about sodium chloride, the Salt Guru has been creating informative and often witty YouTube videos combating "myth-information" about salt, an essential nutrient. Past videos have provided tips on such things as the surprising health benefits of salt, cooking with salt and salt's impact on history and etymology. For example, did you know the Latin derivation of the word "salad" is "sal" and refers to salted vegetables?
This animated video addresses these and other questions:
-- When did the Salt Guru become so fascinated with sodium chloride and what he calls its "miracle molecules" critical for health, water conditioning and safe passage on snowy winter roads?
-- Does the Salt Guru think he can take on powerful anti-salt interest groups and overly zealous federal agencies intent on reducing salt consumption to unprecedented low and unhealthy levels?
