AUSTIN (KXAN) — The federal government is taking aim at how much salt we eat. Currently, Americans eat 3,400 milligrams of sodium everyday.
Heart Hospital of Austin Dietitian Megan Anderson joined us in the KXAN studio to discuss how to cut your salt consumption.
The CDC wants to lower the nation’s salt consumption to 2,300 a day. The American Heart Association says we should eat only 1,500 milligrams daily.
