Yes. For normal healthy people, salt is fine.
There are people who need to avoid too much salt however... and they generally know who they are.
Such as people suffering from CHD/HBP and the resulting edema. Salt intake often results in a sudden increase in the edema and a huge increase in the BP as well which stresses an already bad heart. Not a good combo.
My father-in-law is in this situation.
Also, myself. My body does not process spinal/intracranial fluid properly and the resulting water retention from eating excess salt is very stressful. High intracranial pressure can cause permanent damage including blindness if not managed carefully. Not good.
Some people with kidney disease might also have a problem with salt in their diet...
Like I said, those who really shouldn't consume it probably know it... although there is also good scientific evidence that most people over consume sodium chloride in relation to or under consume potassium and other minerals (due to processed foods) and that it is actually this imbalance that creates many of the problems more than just 'salt' itself.
