Kinshasha talks 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.”
