Opinion: Potassium Replete-ism


“If we’re going to measure it, we should probably treat it, eh?”
- Dave, Canadian, Replete-ist


 “A banana?  That is only 10 milli-equivalents of K.  There is more K in a serving of pumpkin pie.”
- Jaquelyn, nutritionist with general dislike for tropical fruits

 “Nobody likes a potassium replete-ist... except the pharmaceutical companies producing K-Dur and the like.  K-Dur is literally just medical grade salt.  It is potassium chloride.  Isn’t a salt pill the definition of placebo?  ...Or is that a sugar pill?”
- Ted, self-doubting big pharma skeptic


 “Bananas are gosh darned tasty.”
