CDC issues dire warning about American diets

Trending story found on
Americans are consuming way too much salt in their diets and getting most of their daily sodium from processed and restaurant foods. According to a recent report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted between 2013 and 2014, Americans are consuming 3,400 milligrams of sodium per day, far more than the recommended allowance. The CDC recommends that individuals consume less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily and that people aged 51 and over and African Americans limit their intake to 1,500 mg. As a point of reference, a McDonald’s Big Mac contains 960 mg of sodium.
