Quote
For the first time, the U.S. government is advising that more than half of the American population needs to drastically cut their daily salt intake.

According to new dietary guidelines, those who are most at risk for high blood pressure; including those over the age of 51; African-Americans; those suffering from hypertension; diabetes or chronic kidney disease, which together make up half the U.S. population are being urged to consume only about a half a teaspoon of salt a day.

The Agriculture and Health and Human Services departments issue the guidelines every five years, and recommends that everyone else stick to the “teaspoon a day” guideline of 2,300 milligrams, which is about one-third less than the average person usually consumes.

Yes, and more than half of the population should eat less...

But do we really need the government to tell us the obvious?

when government pays for your health care, they can tell you what not to eat if they feel like it.

emphatically, no.  I was painting a nightmare scenario.  if government is responsible for your health care, what would keep them from regulating your salt intake?  or rationing chocolate, or taxing fat people, or making smoking a felony.

(and I'm sort of hurt that you had to ask the question  Wink  )
