Bakersfield, California (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

If you’ve been trying to treat your high blood pressure with a low salt diet, wants you to know you might be doing the wrong thing. In a recently published article entitled “Want to Lower High Blood Pressure and Have Better Heart Health? Salt Isn’t the Enemy,” the team tackles one of the healthcare industry’s biggest myths.

According to the article, salt is not the culprit. In fact, the article claims that lowering or eliminating salt could actually harm the body over the long-term. Salt is actually essential for the body to function properly. The article states that salt-restricted diets can actually increase blood pressure.

The problem, rather than being a salt problem, is a processed salt problem, the article claims. Commercial table salt, which is processed and refined, is actually toxic to the body. Instead of eliminating salt altogether, people who are trying to lower their blood pressure should switch from iodized salt to natural salts, like Himalayan or Celtic salts. Derived from the sea, these have a positive effect on blood pressure and the body.

When asked about the addition of the article to the database, Albert Milligan, owner of, indicated “When we really started researching the truth about salt and blood pressure, we realized we had to share it with our readers. Too many people have been given false information.” offers quality pink Himalayan salts to help their customers boost heart health.

Holiday Travelers Stranded when Missed Connections Aren’t Covered, warns Squaremouth

St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) December 24, 2012

This week marks one of the busiest travel times of the year at airports across the country. Squaremouth, America’s fastest growing travel insurance comparison site, is reminding travelers to choose wisely when considering coverage for missed or delayed flights.

Initially, the differences between trip interruption and missed connection coverage may seem subtle, but the coverage a traveler chooses can greatly differ. So when it comes to covering delays, what is the difference between the two benefits?

Trip interruption coverage is a popular choice for many travelers. This coverage reimburses unused trip costs if a traveler has to end a trip early and return home. This benefit can be valuable to travelers, so long as the interruption falls under the covered reasons listed on the policy. These reasons may include bad weather, strike or mechanical failure. If a traveler satisfies the coverage requirements, trip interruption will reimburse the costs incurred to get back home or to re-join the trip.

“Many people don’t realize they have the option to catch up to a trip if something goes wrong,” says Chris Harvey, CEO of Squaremouth. “This option allows travelers to continue on with their plans and avoid cancelling expensive portions of their vacation.”

For some travelers, one disadvantage of relying on trip interruption coverage is they must insure at least a portion of their trip costs. This may mean more upfront cost but the traveler would be eligible for more reimbursement in the event of a claim. Coverage provided by the trip interruption benefit can total up to 200% of the trip cost. For some travelers, this might offer thousands more in coverage compared to the missed connection benefit, which may only offer a few hundred dollars.

There are circumstances where missed connection coverage is more beneficial. This coverage can reimburse a traveler for fees associated with flight changes. Similar to trip interruption, it may cover the transportation costs incurred to catch up to a cruise, tour or destination if the traveler misses a flight due to a common carrier delay. Although it varies by policy, delays can result from inclement weather or common carrier complications.

A traveler might not have to insure a trip cost in order to take advantage of the missed connection benefit in a policy. Many policies offer this benefit regardless of whether travelers have chosen to insure their expenses. In general, it’s often easier to meet the requirements for missed connection coverage.

A policyholder should however, be aware of time requirements for most missed connection benefits. “It’s always important for people to know the details of their policy,” says Chris Harvey, CEO of Squaremouth. “If a traveler misses a flight by two hours and their missed connection coverage requires a minimum three hour delay, they won’t be covered.”

Bottom line, missed connection is usually easier to claim but less money up front. Trip interruption however, typically requires a more difficult delay, but can reimburse a higher dollar amount.

Whether it’s the higher reimbursement amount with trip interruption or the ease of satisfying the coverage requirements with missed connection, travelers are encouraged to evaluate their specific needs. The differences between the two benefits can greatly impact a traveler’s ability to receive reimbursement, which is why choosing the policy that fits best can make all the difference for holiday travel.
