You’ve messed with my health care, and now you’re gonna mess with my food?


The Food and Drug Administration is planning an unprecedented effort to gradually reduce the salt consumed each day by Americans, saying that less sodium in everything from soup to nuts would prevent thousands of deaths from hypertension and heart disease. The initiative, to be launched this year, would eventually lead to the first legal limits on the amount of salt allowed in food products.


I know the McDonald’s fries over at the Route 1 store in Arlington are waaayyy oversalted, but that’s no reason to go all nanny-state on me.

The amazing part is that there isn’t even clear evidence that salt causes the damage the FDA claims. Check it out.
