About 90 percent of Americans eat more sodium than is recommended for a healthy diet. Too much sodium increases a person’s risk for high blood pressure, and high blood pressure often leads to heart disease and stroke. • So, we started the SPOT THE SALT campaign to give you important information and simple steps than can help you reduce the amount of sodium you eat everyday. We hope you’ll spend some time learning more about where sodium hides and how you can make healthier, low-sodium choices.
