    Except that sodium isn't a poison. It's a mineral that our bodies need. Overconsumption is what poisons and I am not of a mind to limit anyone based on the bad decisions of others.



    Why can't anything ever be about personal responsibility to you hippies? Oh wait...nevermind.
    Because when personal responsibility fails, what should we do? Let people die in the streets or raise taxes to pay for their medical care?

    Heinz is reducing the level of addictive additive in their ketchup 15% "by the summer". Coincidence? They are also altering the sweetener to ordinary less fattening sugar. They're all heart.

    That wasn't the context but I wouldn't expect you to care about using things in context. When it's obvious that people are not being personally responsible and that lack of personal responsibility then affects society as a whole, what should we do?

    Sheesh are we really going on and on about sodium level in food?

    The "so called" conservative approach would be social Darwinism.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    There really exist no context in which a rational person would try to postulate that people are dying in the streets for any reason. Feel free to spin your obvious appeal to the absurd as much as you want. That will make it all better, more spin spin for big nanny government regulating personal salt intake, ya know because people can't take responsibility and they are, ya know, dying in the streets and put lead back in paint. Absurd Baby Jesus..........if your point requires you to enter into such flights of absurd fancy, maybe you should have a look at your so called point.

    Re: FDA plans to limit amount of salt allowed in processed foods for health reasons

    Not having read much except the first 5 pages of this thread, my understanding of the role salt takes in food is as follows:

    Salt is necessary.
    Too much salt is bad.
    Too little salt is bad.

    The correct middle ground between the two most likely is different for each person.

    As a personal ancdote, I have tried both too salty and no salt foods.

    As it happens, I personally am of the opinion that too much salt ruins food, but too little (or none - have you tried no-salt potato chips? - Mmmmm!) is perfectly fine for a change of pace.
    Of course, I'm probably not counting the naturally occuring salt/sodium levels in various components of said food...
