Less Salt Equals Less Cardiovascular Disease

Approximately 17 million people die from cardiovascular disease each year, and salt is believed to be a major contributor to the problem. It can increase blood pressure by retaining excess fluid and increasing stress on the heart and has been linked to an increased risk of stroke, heart failure, osteoporosis, stomach cancer and kidney disease. This isn't just an adult problem, 97 percent of children in the United States eat too much salt.

Fats, Sugar and Salt

The massive amount of salts, sugars and fats in our diet has taken over health news this week, and it's about time! Consumption of salty, sugary and fatty foods has skyrocketed in the United States. We now consume more than three times the amount of cheese than in the 1970's -- 33 pounds of cheese per year, along with 70 pounds of sugar and six pounds of salt!

The Hidden Salt in Our Food

The average American's salt intake is about 3,400 milligrams a day, more than twice the American Heart Association's recommended limit of 1,500 milligrams! It's important to note that little of that excess salt actually comes from the salt shaker. More than 75% of people’s salt consumption comes from eating processed or restaurant foods.
