The Salty Truth

 

Almost 60% of Americans have tried to reduce the amount of sodium they consume, according to a new survey.  But with excess salt in the processed and restaurant foods that we eat, it can be tough to avoid.  So, it’s no surprise that the overwhelming majority of us, 75%, say they want to see less sodium in our food supply.
 
How can we make that happen?  It will take a vocal consumer base, food manufacturers and restaurants committing to changes, and Food and Drug Administration guidelines to give Americans more choice over the sodium we consume.

Help us continue to build the base of heart-smart consumers by spreading awareness about our country’s salty problem.  Just click in our new infographic below to share with family and friends.
