A Little or a Lot of Salt

That's the term that we'd apply to the following data chart which contains the amount of sodium found in popular - as well as the most common selections of grain.

Keep in mind that when the food source comes from restaurant or fast food dining, it's apt to contain far more as it's a very inexpensive additive that adds flavor to foods.

Americans Used to Overusing Salt

And in this day and age - Americans are used to having their foods highly salted, and the more they consume, the higher the risks become to their state of health.

Excessive amounts in the daily diet may lead to numerous health issues including heart, kidney and bladder issues - as well as increased blood pressure and stroke.

On that sour note, let's examine the amount of sodium found in grain group foods.
