consuming salt?
Risks
Who is this
problem affecting?
Where is salt produced?
What's the issue?
Yes, we are!
Ages 51 to 70: 1300mg
Ages 1 to 8: 1000mg - 1200mg
Ages 9 to 50: 1500mg
Average person: 3400mg
That`s twice the amount we should be having!
75% of the salt you consume comes from processed food!
makes your body hold more water
extra water makes your blood pressure high
strains your kidney, arteries, heart and brain
hypertension

A lot of countries that have a coastline.
Issue
Little pay
Harsh skin conditions
Long days at work
Hard working conditions
Picking up heavy equipment
Weather conditions aren't always the best
What is the Solution?
Try these:
cut down on processed food
cut down on fast food
eat vegetables and fruit
look at food labels and check the amount of sodium
drink more milk or soy beverages
eat yogurt
eat unseasoned meat, fish , seafood
don't eat to many nuts
The less we consume, the less we need to produce which helps the producers who suffer from diseases, illnesses and hard working conditions!
