  • Description:
    Eating too much sodium can lead to increased blood pressure, which in turn contributes to heart disease and stroke. Reducing sodium intake to recommended amounts is important to maintaining heart health.

    It may surprise you to learn that more than 75% of the sodium Americans consume comes from processed and restaurant foods. Only a small amount comes from the salt shaker, either during home cooking or at the dinner table.
