    No, I tried hand you a tool to go out and pick something low sodium for yourself. I never made any claim as to what your choice would be. I think you're having the memory lapse here.

    I'm sitting here looking at Oroweat (owned by Bimbo Bakeries) double fiber no high fructose corn syrup english muffins. Sounds pretty healthy huh?

    Well the sodium content per serving is 320mgs. That certainly is not advertised.
    I don't know how many different ways to tell you: use the ****ing tools available to you to make choices that are good for you.

    That's a bald-faced lie. You failed to use the tool or refused to use the tool. And that's why you have heart disease now; not because the bread gave it to you but because you chose not to make good decisions.

    Im not the one lying here. You have no idea about why I have heart disease and how it came about.

    Again you used the wrong tool in your example yesterday.

    No, I did not. That's a bald faced lie. I handed you a web site that gave you ingredients and their amounts. You were able to use it to determine whether a product was good for you or not. You claim it wasn't. Fine...you got the information you needed to make an informed decision. Now you can either use that tool to find a product good for you or you can sit here and whine about how it doesn't do what you want (which is basically everything but wipe your behind for you). We see which you have chosen to do. I can't imagine that this is a new behavior for you so I can make an educated guess as to exactly why you have a health problem now.

    I looked up the sodium content since the thread is about sodium. Calm down.

    This is not to be, at any point, scientific or anything other than anecdotal. But, at the high school I used to go to, we had a long history of the school's Home Economics class prepare lunches for the whole school in a state of the art kitchen. Literally, this kitchen is (was) bigger than most apartments and was filled head-to-toe with stainless steel beauty. Walking into the kitchen made one believe in God, or at least the Food Network having a future. Nothing was more interesting than viewing (safely) your lunch prepared by dutiful students and teachers. It was a dinner'n'show combo in the most unique, fulfilling and delightful sense.

    Yet, even with all the glory and splendor of this food preparing bonaza, it had to be closed. It's healthy foodstuff, prepared right in front of us, little waste and a whole lot of love; disappeared. It was shut down. The kitchen is not used anymore and a part of it was replaced with lunch lines. You know what is eaten there now? Overly processed "food" that is only punctuated by some horribly deformed fruit.

    Why? Because of the FDA and California state me-too'ers. Recent requirements in CA, covering not only nutritional requirements but also how/who/when has in effect axed the whole program.

    The FDA (at my school, at any rate) is only fixing a problem of overly salty foods that in, in effect, created.

    It's why I hate the government.

    What is a safe average daily intake of sodium for an adult? (without googling it)
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.
