Salt retains body fluids and up blood pressure and cholesterol. Foods like soy sauce, ketchup, and bottled salad dressing, bacon, hot dogs, pickles and frozen food entrees all contain salt. If you’re lucky enough to find “no salt added” versions of canned beans canned peas, tomatoes buy those. I find that Walmart's brand "Great Value" are most low in salt and sugar. Be kind to your heart ...you only have one! Take the Salt shaker off the table.
