The prestigious Journal of the American College of Nutrition (JACN) has published several studies claiming that excessive salt consumption is not as bad for your health as was previously determined. The published studies have since received press attention all over the U.S. It has now been revealed that the guest editor of that particular issue of the journal Dr. Alexander G. Logan, was a paid consultant to the salt industry. The regular editors of JACN also allowed the piece to be edited by a sodium committee stacked with representatives from Frito-Lay, Heinz, Kraft, and Proctor & Gamble. Several of the studies were written by past and current consultants to the Salt Institute, which is the industry's lobbying arm. JACN has since apologized for not disclosing this information and for publishing studies that it now confesses were not even peer-reviewed, which is supposed to be standard protocol for publishing any study.
