The Sodium Epidemic

by admin

Too much sodium consumption can cause serious health problems. But 90% of Americans consume too much sodium. Although it is difficult to reduce sodium, your health depends on it.

The daily recommended sodium intake is 1,500 mg or less. However, Americans consume more than twice as much. High blood pressure is caused by sodium, which is also a contributing factor. In the United States, high blood tension is one of the leading causes of death for women.

A high sodium intake can cause:

 

  • Heart Disease
  • Kidney Disease
  • Stomach Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Stroke
  • Headaches

Check the labels on the foods you eat to reduce these risks. 25 percent of sodium is found in restaurants, while the majority comes from supermarkets. Know what you are buying and what you are being served – this may mean some restaurant shopping.

Here is a list with foods high in sodium to be aware of:

  • Ready-made sandwiches
  • Pizza
  • Cold Cuts
  • Bread
  • Soups

In the United States, there is an epidemic of sodium consumption. You can prevent the harmful health effects caused by this epidemic by avoiding foods that are high in salt or MSG.
