Salt Content in Some Foods is Still too High


By Molly Clifton

Despite calls for the food industry to voluntarily reduce sodium levels, a new study finds the salt in processed and fast food remains as high as ever.

Researchers from Northwestern found that between 2005 and 2011, the sodium content in processed food decreased slightly, while the sodium in fast food products actually went up a little.

Most americans eat way more than the daily recommended amount of salt, most of it comes from processed or restaurant foods.

Health experts say it’s time for the government to step in and regulate the food industry.
