It's all in the bread
If you look at your loaf of bread today you may want to check its salt content. Why? Well the content of some bread is so high it may be causing a health risk to you. It seems the European union have cottoned on to this and are about to bring in legislation to prevent bread from calling itself healthy if the salt content is greater than 1g of salt per 100g.
I checked my measly slice of toast this morning, 0.33g per slice! Now it turns out bread is the largest single source of our dietary salt. In terms of public health that equates to about 7000 lives per year saved if bread had no salt in it.
Smoking - the great equaliser

Tom Jefferson at the Cochrane Vaccine group publication in the BMJ on the role of funding and quality and publication is worth taking a look at. Analysing studies on vaccines from published systematic reviews, they asked the question of whether publication in prestigious journals is associated with industry funding.
