Like this is.  An order of cheese fries with ranch?  1.5 days worth of sodium in one side dish.*shudder*

I should probably add that all that salt does nothing good for weight loss, either. Not to mention high blood pressure, etc.

my diet has gone out of the window in the last two weeks with so many snack foods around. Back to the drawing board

True.  There are some dead giveaways.  What's been really enightening to me has been the sodium numbers.  Shocked  Mindboggling.
yes.  But one of the weirdnesses of medicine is the caution about salt intake.  Its everywhere 'bad for the heart' (and I do avoid too much, it makes me pee) but I have no idea what science its based upon.  After all our blood is 300 mM salt - thats a lot of salt.  Indeed, we are basically bags of primordial ocean.  Why is it bad for us?

ETA: Maybe the body already has the appropriate balance of sodium naturally.  The human body is basically one giant saline solution with just the right amount of salt. Add too much and you create problems.


According to the American Heart Association, the problem is that water retention can lead to heart disease or stroke by overloading the blood vessels.  The average person needs 200 mg of sodium a day; the average American eats 3600 mg.

Well, too much salt in the sea is a bad thing too - look at the dead sea for example!  But I think the salt focus is overstated and causes people to think less about far more important dietary considerations - saturated fats and sugar calories for example.  Actually, I think one does better by focusing on what one should eat than on what one should not

Moderation in everything, right?  Cool

As a member of a family with rampant blood pressure and heart disease problems and the survivor of two mini-strokes, I have to say that I think excess sodium is at least as dangerous as excess fat and sugar.
