I have been asked to do several interviews on salt (aka. sodium) in food recently, and wanted to share the one that was published most recently in the Wall Street Journal on September 27, “Making Sense of the Salt Shaker.”
Tips to reduce sodium intake without sacrificing flavor

Clearly, the beef chili example used in the recipe was not my choosing. However, the technique works well for anything that you can stir and season: think soups, stews, sauces, or a pot of beans.
