MORE INFORMATION:
1 in 3 Americans have high blood pressure and most get almost twice the daily recommended value of sodium- usually from processed foods.

    While tracking my food here, I noticed that even though I never, ever put salt on anything, it's in everything! Sometimes I even go over for the day.

I try to drink a LOT of water to wash it on through.
