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.

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

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...
