FDA Urging Less Salt

Finally!!! The salt content in processed food and restaurant food has been incredibly high and contributing to poor overall health for us all. Although the goal to cut average sodium level from 3400 mg to 3000 mg a day over the next 2.5 years is still above the recommended allowance of about 2300 mg a day, this is an important step in the right direction and will make a difference in preventing chronic illnesses.
