quote from "Salt, Sugar, Fat" pg 293
"Intrigued, I began to question my unscientific efforts to compare pillars of processed foods to drug abuse. Yes, salt might be compared to cocaine, for all the pleasure and longing that both provide, but this salt substitute was something else altogether. It wasn't a drug as much as it was a cure. Maybe this was the methadone for an industry hooked on salt. Something to ease the pain of the companies trying to break their habit on salt- without hurting their sales."
