How to build a sauna on a budget.

Disclaimer: this account of sauna building is what worked for us. It is entirely at your own risk to pursue such a project and a fire extinguisher to hand (stored outside of the sauna itself), never bathing alone and leaving if you feel dizzy or overheated are essential for safety.

Re: Comments on the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee

A. Sodium

There is a distinct and growing lack of scientific consensus on making a single sodium consumption recommendation for all Americans, owing to a growing body of research suggesting that the low sodium intake levels recommended by the DGAC are actually associated with increased mortality for healthy individuals.

B. Saturated Fat

In the spirit of the 2015 DGAC’s commendable revision of previous DGAC recommendations to limit dietary cholesterol, the Academy suggests that HHS and USDA support a similar revision deemphasizing saturated fat as a nutrient of concern.
