Professor: ‘Americans are still eating too much salt’

white-danaDana White, clinical assistant professor of athletic training and sports medicine in the School of Health Sciences at Quinnipiac University, was quoted in US News & World Report and other national media organizations about Americans’ consumption of salt. According to a new study, Americans consume nearly twice the daily recommended amount of salt.

“Americans are still eating too much salt,” White said. “The majority of sodium that folks take in is not from the salt-shaker at the table or from what is used to season food while cooking in a home kitchen, it’s from restaurant, take-out and highly processed convenience foods. There is nothing wrong with resorting to these types of food from time to time, but when they are part of your daily routine, it adds up to a heaping pile of salt.”
