More Bogus than Real: Blood pressure determined by balance of cardiac (heart) output vs. Total peripheral (arteriolar) resistance, both controlled by our brain + additional local feedback into arteriolar resistance. Our bodies are built of salt water; fundamental to all living creatures & necessary for life. ↑ nacl intake tends to ↑ water retention which may increase heart output, bp, edema; but absolutely not primary.
