Shaking Up the Salt Scene; Thank You FDA

The Food and Drug Administration this week fired a major salvo in the ongoing battle to limit salt in processed foods, saying it plans to gradually cut salt levels in processed foods.

I say move faster. I know the food business says consumers will balk at foods with less salt because the taste will change. I say if the only thing selling your products to consumers is salt, you have a bigger problem than just worrying about the FDA.

Reputable health experts agree that Americans, on average, consume too much salt each day. It is a constant challenge for me, given the amount of food I eat away from home.

I welcome immediate reductions, not just gradualism. But that said, at least this is a step in the right direction and should spur food companies to do more on their own to preclude more draconian federal mandates.
