FDA calls for sharp reduction in salt added to foods

from Reuters

U.S. health officials recommended cutting the amount of salt added to foods to help Americans reduce their sodium consumption by about a third, according to proposed guidelines that are likely to have a wide-ranging impact on the processed food industry in the United States. Increased sodium intake is linked to high blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease and stroke — two major causes of death in the United States.
