Reducing the nation's salt intake
I saw this article online this morning and figured I'd see what you guys thought. The average american eats about 3000-4000 mg of sodium per day, when the actual maximum should be 1500-2000 mg. Many companies are now going to begin slowly reducing the amount of sodium in their foods. As a person who is on a low sodium diet by necessity, I can honestly say many American's don't know HOW to eat a low sodium diet. They don't recognize which food contain excessive amounts of sodium or how to cook tasty low sodium meals. My questions are:
1. Are you concerned about the amount of sodium you and your family eats?
2. What do you think of companies reducing the amount of sodium in their foods? Do you think it will influence you buying the product because the taste will change?

I heard an interesting trivia fact today. The nanny state which brought us the "meat wars" was based on faulty, incomplete science following Eisenhower's heart attack on the golf course. We, as Americans do, had a knee jerk reaction and began the long road to the "nanny-nutrition state" we are today. All because a former president had a heart attack. Hot damn!!!
