Low-salt strategies

The U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) recently released a report encouraging new polices to reduce salt consumption, based on research suggesting that a 35% reduction in U.S. salt intake would save 90,000 lives each year. One IOM member likened the need to reduce current salt consumption to that of trans fats. Based on the report, Harvard University and The Culinary Institute of America have jointly published a list of personal strategies to reduce daily salt intake, including greater vegetable consumption and use of flavorful herbs.
