There's a lot of hidden salt in foods in which you would not expect to find it.

Salt Lurks in Unsuspected Foods

"Dec. 1, 2008 -- Even if you never touch a salt shaker and steer clear of potato chips and french fries, you are probably eating more salt than you think and much more than is good for you, an investigation from Consumer Reports shows.

Researchers analyzed 37 processed foods and identified some surprising sources of hidden sodium.

Among the least expected findings:

  • A 1/2-cup serving of a low-fat cottage cheese had twice as much sodium (360 milligrams) as a 1-ounce serving of regular potato chips (180 milligrams).
  • A Premium Caesar Salad with grilled chicken from McDonald's had more than twice the salt (890 milligrams) as a large order of McDonald's fries (350 milligrams). And that's without the dressing."
It's best to cook it yourself so that you can control the amount of salt in the meal, and if you buy processed food make sure you lead the label and choose a lower salt/option if you can. Even if you lower your salt intake by only a modest amount you will feel better and your health will benefit. Try to keep to the lower salt intake and your taste for salt will become less, just like your taste for sugar lessens when you cut down on sugar in tea or coffee.

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
