FDA Urges Regulations on Sodium

The Food and Drug Administration could soon limit the amount of salt that is added to American's foods, CNN said.

The Institute of Medicine has called on the FDA to place regulations on the amount of sodium added to processed and prepared foods, in an effort to decrease the health risks associated with salt consumption, CNN said.

The regulation would call for small incremental reductions-- with the idea of keeping flavors consistent, The Los Angles Times said.

Public Health Advocacy groups and nutrition scientists support the decision, while some industry groups denounced the idea, The Los Angles Times said.
