Mission control: Salty diet makes you hungry, not thirsty
from Max Delbrck Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association via ScienceDaily
We've all heard it: eating salty foods makes you thirstier. But what sounds like good nutritional advice turns out to be an old-wives' tale. In a study carried out during a simulated mission to Mars, an international group of scientists has found exactly the opposite to be true. 'Cosmonauts' who ate more salt retained more water, weren't as thirsty, and needed more energy.
