What we need to do to protect our health is, according to an article, I've just read is eat less packaged food. Also, according to the article, complications from high blood pressure, such as heart attacks, heart disease and stroke, are already starting to become more common in middle age. People are developing high blood pressure younger and younger and we're eating more convenience food containing salt.
To name a few: Diet soda - 1 can - 40-70 mg, graham crackers - 8 crackers - 190 mg, Lowfat cottage cheese - 1 cup - 918 mg
Many of our condiments like ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce and pasta sauces, and salad dressings are culprits.
I am being reminded once again to READ THE LABEL!
