New Yorkers Should Cut Their Salt Intake IN HALF!

| Filed under: FoodHealthAdvice

new yorkers consume too much salt

Well, now we understand EVEN MORE why New York called for a nationwide salt reduction back in October.

According to a new study by New York's health department, NY residents consume, on average, double the amount of salt that is recommended per day (3,150 mg vs. 1,500 mg).

The NY health department is calling the number "alarmingly high," and they're saying that only 1 in 5 New Yorkers are consuming the recommended amount of salt per day. Wow!

Fortunately, companies are listening and have agreed to lower the amounts of salt in their foods. Here are some of the companies who have made this pledge:

Bertucci's Italian Restaurant, Black Bear European Style Deli, Campbell Soup Company, Dietz & Watson, Ken's Foods, Snyder's-Lance, Inc., & Target Corporation

Sounds good to us!

And to all the New Yorkers out there - We've been there and we get it, but please keep all of this in mind next time you're debating whether or not those french fries are already sufficiently salted…
