Assuming osmotic pressure is the (main?) culprit, why isn't the chlorine ion loose in your body after eating salt considered equally responsible for hypertension?
I have searched Google and Wikipedia, and cannot find an answer.
I have looked here at Stack Exchange, too.
Why is it that you always hear about how bad 'sodium' is for your diet, but every sodium cation comes with a chloride....
Could someone point me to an article, at least?
