A Little Salt is OK; Too Much Can Cause Trouble

Be smart about sodium.

You develop a greater sensitivity to sodium as you get older which may contribute to high blood pressure.

Eating too much salt makes your body lose calcium.

Treating hypertension may prevent dementia.

Simply draining and rinsing canned beans will lower their sodium value by 40%.

Processed foods and restaurant meals are the greatest contributors of salt in our diets, not the salt shaker.
