In Reply.—  I agree with most of the points in Dr Kaplan's excellent letter. Indeed, he does a better job of making the key points than I did in my editorial. I especially like his modification of my Figure of the saturation effect and will use it in future presentations.My only point of disagreement is that I still believe it is easy to identify the high-risk groups and that it is more important to concentrate on lowering sodium intake in these groups and not force the entire population to worry about sodium.
