The problem with salt...and the solution

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the average American consumes about 3,466mg of sodium per day. The federal guidelines recommend 1,500mg!

More than 75% of our salt intake comes from processed and restaurant foods including: frozen dinners, lunch meats, salad dressings and even granola bars.

The DASH Diet is helping at-risk adults hit the 1,500mg target.  It is essentially a diet of whole foods, including fruits & veggies, whole grains and low-fat dairy products with a small amount of animal protein.

In a Harvard study of more than 3,000 people with slightly elevated blood pressure, researchers found that those who significantly reduced their salt intake had a 25% lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease than those who ate their usual diets. Their risk of death from heart disease and stroke was also cut by up to 20%

Dr. James Rohack of the American Medical Association (AMA) board of directives said that 150,000 lives could be saved each year in the U.S. if everyone cut their sodium intake in half.

In 2006 the AMA called for a minimum 50% reduction in processed foods, fast foods and non-fast food restaurant meals within a decade...very little seems to have been done so far.  They also called on the FDA to make greater efforts to educate consumers about the health risks associated with a high-sodium diet.
