Hold The Salt From Everything, Please

The FDA, following in Mike Bloomberg’s footsteps, is making plans to force food manufacturers to gradually reduce the amount of salt in their offerings. Salt content went unnoticed until now because it was “generally recognized as safe,” but that was back before the average American was eating 3,500 milligrams of it a day. (That’s the equivalent of 1.25 Triple Baconators. Which seems a little low!)
