A SALTY Situation: Did the Feds get their Nutrition Facts right?

This we all share,

…the cravings of Salt.

 

Not this Salt, the food kind!

The taste of salt is one of the basic human tastes.

Most omnivores savor salty meat, when is the last time you enjoyed a hamburger?

Salt is required for life.

The salty components:

Sodium and chloride ions regulate fluid balance in the body. It’s a mechanism of equilibrium.

You have to keep balance.

Too much Salt = National Health Risk

Warning: High salt diet may cause serious disease, use at own risk.

It’s a salty situation because we are programmed to enjoy salt — we require it. The problem is that we enjoy salt a little bit… too much. Just as sugar brings its own sweet temptation, salt is equally desirable.

What to do about it?

How much salt in 2,300 milligrams?

About one teaspoon of salt.

This much salt per DAY… not meal!

Message to Nation: We should limit to only one teaspoon of salt.

The big Salty Offenders!

The worst foods are:

  • Pre-packaged foods
  • Fast Food
  • Most cuisine and restaurants
  • Processed foods
  • Canned foods

Danger Zone!

A single serving is all it takes.

Truthism: Seek a Balance

Equilibrium.

Competing forces which approach the state of optimal function.

I won’t tell you what to do, but maybe just to become more cognizant of the ingredients in your food.

So Stay fresh, my friends.

It’s harder than it looks
