The War On Salt!

The War on Terror Salt has taken a dark turn today as the New York City Health Department releases guidelines suggesting salt intake. Apparently it’s just for the maximum amount of salt that should be in a wide variety of manufactured and packaged foods. It is purely voluntary for now and there are no penalties for not getting in line with what NYC says you can and can’t do, which is in stark contrast with the Trans Fat guidelines which were mandatory. However I have to say that at some point all of you are going to have to tell Old Lady Liberal Agenda to take a hike and quit trying to control your lives. I mean really? GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!


The recommendations call for sizable reductions in the sodium content of many products, from a 20 percent drop in peanut butter to a 40 percent decline in canned vegetables.

Seventeen national health organizations and 25 other city or state health agencies have joined with New York City in the effort, called the National Salt Reduction Initiative. It aims to reduce the average American’s salt intake by 20 percent in five years.
