Default US food companies join officials in anti-salt drive

Sixteen leading US food companies have joined a health initiative to reduce salt levels in restaurants and meals by 25 percent by 2014, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Monday.
"By working together over the past two years, we have been able to accomplish something many said was impossible -- setting concrete, achievable goals for salt reduction," Bloomberg told reporters at a news conference where he was flanked by top health representatives.

"The National Salt Reduction Initiative has the potential to save tens of thousands of lives that otherwise would be lost to cardiovascular disease in coming years," he added.

I thought this was all settled by the SALT talks during the '80s.

Coming soon, tax on foods that don't meet the federal salt test. Gotta pay for that health care bill.

I love the thick salt crust on the prime rib fat.

I order my McDonalds french fries with no salt. That way they have to cook a new batch. I then douse them with salt.

How about a little course Kosher salt on top of the chicken pie crust? mmmm

You think salt on the rim of a margarita glass is good? Try it on a bloody mary...

This is all a bunch of BS anyway. Just don't eat too much highly processed food. Back in the "old day" eating out was an occasional treat. Sodas? Maybe one from the ice cream man on allowance day and perhaps a Coke at the matinee on Saturday. We usually had water, milk, ice tea or Kool-Aid.

I don't get this mentality where people buy these giant sodas in half-gallon cups at the C-stores. It's crazy.

I used to work in fast food, and that is exactly what people used to do. I can't blame them either; there's nothing worse than a soggy fry!

I don't mind the salt in restaurant; it's simply a treat. Unless one has a medical condition, it's not going to hurt once in a while, like a night out. It will flush itself out of one's system fairly quickly. It becomes problematic when it is a daily habit.
