Just a Small Cut Can Work Wonders

A new study has shown that if Americans reduced their salt intake by half a

teaspoon each day, it would result in 6% fewer new cases of heart disease, and 3% fewer deaths. Although it’s been known for some time that increased sodium intake is a leading cause of hypertension leading to heart disease, salt consumption is up about 50% since the 1970s.

The average American eats 10-12 grams of salt daily, or up to 4,800 milligrams of sodium. The recommended maximum level is about half of this.

One major problem with reducing salt consumption is the amount of processed food products that Americans eat, that contain high levels of salt and Monosodium Glutamate, rather than the salt shaker on the dining room table.

It’s another reason to eat less processed food, and more fresh food cooked at home.

Legal “Truth” in Labeling

On the cover, it may seem like a miracle.


No Calories! No Transfats!

Upon closer examination, that only applies to:


One teaspoon? Do you only use one teaspoon of sugar? Would you only use one teaspoon of sugar substitute?

Katherine Prouty, of Low Carb Freedom, received an email, from the manufacturer of Splenda. In it, the company explains their claims and the real values..

Ah! If you make your serving size, on the product packaging, smaller, you can claim “zero” and “no” by law.

That isn’t real helpful to the consumer.

There are 48 teaspoons in a cup.

One cup of Splenda, has 24 grams of carbs. That’s twice as many carbs, as once cup of StonyField Farms Whole Milk.

One cup of Splenda has 96 calories.

We all have different diets. We all have different needs and requirements. We all must adjust these labels, to receive the accurate information, that applies, to each of us.

Just know that “NO” and “Zero” on a product’s packaging are as truthful as “No MSG,” “MSG Free,” and even, “Natural,” and many other claims, that the FDA allows, in the U.S.

Why do they feel a need to be deceptive?

While we are standing in the store, making a decision, on which product to buy.. what they show you, right there, in front of you, is all that they have, for marketing.

These products are not about “good for you,” or “healthy.” They are manufacturer’s with budget agenda’s, who want you to simply buy their product.

Do your own homework. Know what you put into your mouth, and those that you feed.

Don’t be deceived.
