bit of an overturn of accepted wisdom

Wanna lose weight? Eat more salt
New scientific findings contradict conventional wisdom about how the body handles salt.

Not sure the hype is justified. I would conclude from the results so far that increased salt intake is associated with a stress response to '1aaprent' dehydration. Tells us nothing about long-term adaptations.
Probably the papers are rather more balanced than the news report.
