According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 9 in 10 Americans consume more than the recommended limits for sodium. The sodium limits, outlined in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, state that people over the age of 14 should consume no more than 2,300 mg of sodium per day – the equivalent to 1 tsp of salt – and less if they are younger. But the reality is that the average American consumes over twice that, at about 3,400 milligrams. This excess of salt in our diets has very real consequences, like an increased risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases, including heart attack and stroke. These shocking facts about the negative effects of getting too much salt in our diets are grim.
