What a worldwide, World Cup kind of program tonight!

The War on Salt – When Is It Time to Shake The Habit?

The FDA has been urged to take action in decreasing the amount of salt in our food. Americans continue to consume much more than the recommended amount which has lead to salt intake becoming the most preventable reason for high blood pressure (HBP).

According to Dr. Chad Rhoden, “public leaders do have the social responsibility to increase health initiatives to reduce sodium consumption in the US since the evidence is clear.”

Kinshasha talked with Dr. Rhoden, a leading authority on disease prevention and a heart expert who is determined to help Americans break their salt addiction, Dr. Rhoden (author of Bringing Down High Blood Pressure) feels that the “awareness of the health risk related to sodium consumption today is analogous to the awareness seen in recent decades regarding smoking/tobacco use.”
