New Sodium Recommendations for Health Canada

Well, it looks like they are looking at more regulations. A group apparently has recommended new low levels of sodium (or salt) for use in processed foods and restaurants across Canada. This is to reduce hypertension and cardiac diseases. It sounds wonderful, but do we need more regulation to ensure our health? After all, shouldn't we be responsible for what we eat?

Besides, is this low sodium health craze really important? Or is it something that should have a closer look. There have been studies that came out recently that have suggested that a low sodium diet may be pointless or detrimental to long term health.

I don't know about you folks. The less the government regulates the better.
