I hate when people try to make me "understand science"; I have a technical degree in food science, I know what I'm talking about. The person who wrote that article googled the information, I used eleven years of academic formation and factory practices.
Sunflower and canola oil have enough unsaturated fatty acids to form a perfectly good seasoning, there's no need to use expensive linseed oil. In fact, it's an awful waste, since that oil it's a great source of omega-3 when is raw.

Don't use coconut oil, use canola or sunflower instead. Coconut oil has 90% saturated fats, so the polymerization is minimum.

The Na labelying is really tricky isn't it? Here we have:

No salt added: less than 5 mg or naturally prepared with salt (so it can be loaded with nitrites and nitrates and still be "no salt added"!).
Low: less than 120 mg.
Very low: less than 40 mg.
Reduced: 25 % less and the difference must be over 120 mg.

You can rub it with a bit of sodium bicarbonate after every use. The iron only rusts in a acidic environment, the alkali will help you to avoid this, without having to heat de pestle and mortar every time you use it.

It says "Sodium is a component of table salt..." And at the end of the post there's a box that indicates that this is a series of posts about Na in food and diet, not about chemistry.

I have osteopenia, and my daily Na intake is half of the amount the WHO recomend for my age; and can't even replace it with K salts, since all the medications that I take are potassium sparing. NOT FUNNY at all!
