I thought about salted butter and concluded it is harmful

It's salted largely to preserve it. Nowadays there are other preservatives and refrigeration, however in some places people have come to like the taste. The amount of salt in it is actually very small, and there are of course other ways to reduce it from a diet.

a miserable place to live under former Presidency but now they are up for a revival with the new government

Things are on the up for them after the nightmare of trumpet and his republican sociopaths.

I thought the salty taste of that butter was quite conspicuous. But I still remember it from 1980s and the technology of making it might have changed since then.

too many foods contain too much salt

I'm glad to hear that you've discovered the dangers of salt. It is quite literally a killer. You should try not to take more than 6g per day. You should watch your children's diet too. Research shows that even young children who have a salty diet, have elevated blood pressure for their ages. You'll struggle a bit Paw, because you like many of the traditional Polish dishes which are heavy on the salt and fat. However, it's worth it. It does mean though that you'll pretty much have to cut out the wędliny, sausages, and even the smoked fish in large quantities. At least you prepare quite a lot of your own which means you can control the amount of added salt.

Butter is actually not too bad as Jon says. The amount of salt added to Kerrygold for example is 1.8g per 100g but you don't use that much butter on bread or even on spuds or whatever. If you use it once a day on your toast you'd be ok and good quality butter like the Irish stuff has lots of nutrients and vitamins which are beneficial unlike things like ketchup which are loaded with salt but have no benefits at all.

You can counteract the effects of salt with certain foods. Beetroot is great because it's loaded with potassium which lowers the blood pressure. Fresh beetroot juice every day, or fermented beetroot juice are both ideal. Of course the stuff in the shops has added salt! So make your own. Also extract of olive capsules, 1000mg per day has been shown to lower blood pressure by up to 10 points. You can use it alongside regular blood pressure meds and it helps to keep the dosage of the meds lower. They use it in hospitals in Australia for treatment of blood pressure patients as it's so effective.

That`s good. I drink a glass of it every morning. I mix it with Pepsi Cola for a better taste and also for its invigorating effect instead of coffee.

Probably that is why I have had an exemplary blood pressure results all my life.

So make your own.

Of course. I always make such stuff on my own - I am as self reliant as North Korea.

Also extract of olive capsules,

I think using olive oil instead of butter will be enough.

Thank you for taking care of me as if you were my mum. I appreciate it a lot.

So, I gave up salted butter. I also stopped using salt on eggs.

Personally I don't see a point in salted butter. When I bought it by mistake it annoyed me quite few times.

I also stopped using salt on eggs.

Guilty as charged. It just goes so well together....

yes, but I discovered that without salt those eggs are also eatable. :):)/
