It’s the Processed Food, Dammit!


It gets harder to stomach what I read sometimes.  Once again, the CDC is making out salt to be the devil again.   They start out in their weekly report like this:

Excess sodium intake can lead to hypertension, the primary risk factor for cardiovascular disease, which is the leading cause of U.S. deaths

Remember, in July of this year that a “recent report from the CDC reviewed the health benefits of reducing salt and say that, even though Americans consume too much salt, major reductions is no longer considered a substantial health hazard.”

Can they be more confusing?  It’s probably not the salt. It’s probably the processed and crappy food that uses tons of salt to make it taste better, and this article even talks a bit about it but then why the headline?

Americans Still Eat Too Much Salt:CDC

I have blogged about his before so read here and here.   Is it me?  Am I missing something or is the CDC just a bunch of idiots?  If it is the processed food then just say it.
