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

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

    The Food and Drug Administration is planning an unprecedented effort to gradually reduce the salt consumed each day by Americans... yada yada yada... to protect the idiots... yada, yada, yada.
    I spoke with Harkin's office and this is what the babe manning the phones told me:

    The bill is for as much for environmental reasons as health reasons.
    By reducing salt in our food, our stool production will be up to 15% softer and this would allow for faster fragmentation of the mass. That is critical to reducing the amount of double flushing necessary for the smaller toilet tanks mandated by Congress. Billions of gallons of potable water would be saved over the decades.

    Nobody believes preserving potable water is important?
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Would you be surprised if they did? God do I hate Nanny state mentality.

    I maybe in the minority, but I am not too against the idea of setting limits to salt in food. A lot of our food has salt in it that can lead to health problems.

    Try turning it around. You're probably pointing it at yourself.

    Yeah I don't mind. We limit the amount of a lot of chemicals in food for health reasons.
