Salt in the Wound

(David Katz, M.D., Yale Prevention Research Center) We eat too much salt, and so do our children. We can reduce our intake by eating less highly processed food, which is the source of nearly 80% of the sodium in our diets. Doing that, and eating more foods direct from nature would be good for us anyway, because it would also reduce our intake of added sugars and sweeteners, refined starches, miscellaneous chemical mischief, trans fats, and calories, while increasing our intake of beneficial nutrients.
Wholesome foods in sensible combinations would reduce our ambient sodium intake. More importantly, it would fix everything else wrong with our diets, too.
