You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Not to mention the fact that if you eat a Pepperoni Hot Pocket for example, 850mg sodium. Your secondary argument seems to be that if they cut the sodium to 425mg you seem to think people will eat 2 of them just to get the same amount of salt. Seems pretty ridiculous when you actually think about it, eh?
Not to mention that it's not the "liberals" who found that Americans are consuming too much salt for their own good. Which BTW kinda shoots down the whole, 'we can decide for ourselves if it's good for us or not'.

Secondly, red dye is not a natural element our bodies need anyway. It serves no purpose save pure cosmetics and whether you consumed a gallon or a drop, the effects were harmful.
Third, what I AM against is another expansion of government intrusion into the market place. Consumption of sodium in processed food is not a health risk. OVER consumption of processed food is the health risk. I don't see how limiting any one ingredient is going to change habits of OVER consumption of the whole food itself. It's a meaningless bandaid measure that attempts to cure a severed limb.
