Food is still full of salts

Food is still full of salts

Publish date: 2013-05-16

The high salt levels in food and fast food stay actually unchanged, despite numerous calls from public and private health agencies. Researches from Northwestern Medicine study conducted with the Center for Science in the Public Interest about reducing sodium levels for the food industry.

The research which was published in 13th May in JAMA Internal Medicine rated the sodium lining in selected processes foods and fast-food restaurants in 2005, 2008 and 2011. The principal finding was that the sodium subject of food is as high as in other years.

"The voluntary approach has failed," said Stephen Havas, M.D., author of the report and a research professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. "The study demonstrates that the food industry has been dragging its feet and making very few changes. This issue will not go away unless the government steps in to protect the public. The amount of sodium in our food supply needs to be regulated."

High blood pressure increases the risk of developing heart attacks and strokes, often resulting in death or disability are caused by high level of sodium."High salt content in food benefits the food industry," Havas said. "High salt masks the flavor of ingredients that are often not the best quality and also stimulates people to drink more soda and alcohol, which the industry profits from."

About 80% of daily sodium consumption comes from restaurant of processed food. Salt which we add to food is very little.

"The only way for most people to meet the current sodium recommendation is to cook from scratch and not use salt," said Havas. "But that's not realistic for most people." “The FDA needs to begin regulating food processors and the restaurant industry - as has been recommended by the Institute of Medicine and others  as soon as possible”added.

It was remarked that taste buds rapidly conform to less salt. The FDA needs to begin regulating food processors and the restaurant industry - as has been recommended by the Institute of Medicine and others - as soon as possible” said Havas.

The research from 2005-2011 found that the sodium measurement on 402 processed food collapsed by roughly 3,5%. Some products showed decline of at least 30%, the ,most of products showed increases of at least 30 %. The superior finding was the absence of any substancial or statistically meaningful changes in sodium content during six years.

My name is Jessica Luis, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...

Hi I'm happy sharing my work with others without asking money for it. The only thing I ask (and is very clear in the terms of Stock Schange) is the recognition of my pictures, quoting me as the author the picture you are using in your web site.
