Answer to Yesterday’s Question: Salt is fine in moderation, but most Americans don’t seem to know how much sodium they should actually be consuming. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, most Americans consume 4,600 mg of sodium daily – twice the recommended amount. In general, adults should not consume more than 2,300 mg of salt every day. Be aware of how salty your favorite foods are. (Hot dogs can contain up to 680 mg of sodium, and a slice of lunch meat can have up to 480 mg of sodium, for example.)
