Presentation Summary:

Salt is a critical nutrient whose availability we take for granted; it has not always been so. It has a colorful history that includes politics and art, heroes and villains. Even the American Revolution and the Civil War were influenced by salt. It has shaped literature and language, and even the course of our roads and highways.


Philip J. Goscienski, M.D. is a pediatric infectious diseases specialist with a 47-year career in clinical and academic medicine. He is the author of more than 700 newspaper and magazine articles as well as several medical journal articles and textbook chapters on various topics in pediatric infectious diseases. Dr. Goscienski has drawn on his interests in biology, anthropology, paleopathology and physical fitness to develop Better Life Seminars, a series of presentations in which he explains how our most distant ancestors lived and how we can apply this knowledge to extend our health span and avoid the major chronic diseases of our age.
