Discussions that mention potassium

Diet & Nutrition board

Conventional deli meat has nitrates and nitrates are a cancer causing agent(consuming it increases your risk, doesn't mean you'll definitely get it so don't get me wrong). If you eat it often, go organic you won't regret it.
If your worried about sodium, exercise, drink lots of water and eat foods high in potassium...potassium and sodium work hand in hand somehow. I know this isn't what you want to hear but nitrates are horrible for the body.
