Report: FDA should force rollback in salty foods

WASHINGTON – Public health experts urged the Food and Drug Administration Tuesday to force food makers to gradually cut the salt hidden inside their products, something the agency is considering.
Tuesday, the prestigious Institute of Medicine said the food industry hasn't done enough to voluntarily cut back. It urged FDA to set maximum sodium levels for different foods in a stepwise rollback, so people have time to adjust to the change.
The FDA hasn't decided whether to regulate sodium levels, but "no options are off the table," said spokeswoman Meghan Scott.

This is the perfect example of the ignorant in this nation. Pathetic that 'some' Americans are content with the "what's the big deal' ignorance factor and will let a nanny government take care of them... Hey, Americans!!! How about you take care of yourself and stop eating CRAP. If only more Americans would think for themselves and make better decisions on THEIR OWN... It's called personal responsibility. But why be personally responsible? Nanny Government can spoon feed dependent Americans... Funny how if MORE people were personally responsible, food makers would make more healthy foods because the demand for those foods would be higher... But noooooooo, ignorance yields Big Government. Which yields high consumer prices, taxes, etc...
