Do you love sprinkling a little salt on most of your meals? If you’re frequently reaching for the table shaker, take heed. You might be affecting your health more than you know.
You may have heard that Americans eat too much salt on a daily basis. And, if fact we do. On average, Americans eat 3,400 MG of sodium daily — a much larger amount than the recommended 2,300 MG per day (and less — 1,500 MG — if you’re 50 or older, have high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disease).
Take a quick look at American’s consumption habits and how these habits can affect your health.
