RE: They came for my salt shaker and then my sugar bowl
Hi, you missing a big point, the processed food industry is putting to much salt in, we only need 1500mg of salt per day. If you eat two pieces of a large pizza, you already got 2000mg. The AHA has stated that excessive salt is causing 30% more heart attacks a year due to high blood pressure brought on my too much salt intake. That much salt is not added for taste alone, its to preserve the food longer. By improving the packaging they can lower the salt and still preserve the food just as long, and make it healthier to eat. No one is regulating people's intake of salt, they are limiting processed food companies from adding too much. By the way sea salt is better for you, its the sodium content of food thats the problem, not just salt. Sea salt has less sodium chloride and other salts so it does not raise blood pressure as much for equal portions of it.
