Salt MattersJulie Kennel | May 18, 2011
Most people think the culprit of their salt intake is the salt shaker in their kitchen. Not even close! But what food contributes the most to our sodium intake? Tell us your answer in our poll. Next week, we’ll see how you did.
The Centers for Disease Control recently released, “Salt Matters: Preserving Choice, Protecting Health,” which hopes to get this message out to consumers. The new video tells viewers the staggering facts about the sodium in our food: where it comes from, how it affects our health, and what we can do about it. The video is available in three versions of varying length: public service announcement (PSA) version (~2 minutes), a short version (~4 minutes) and the extended version (~15 minutes).
