    Don't see why the CDC is getting involved with personal health issues that are out of their jurisdiction and job reining skills. Salt is not a disease or germ they should concern themselves with. Maybe the first lady is backdooring the publice with more useless infromation and interference with what and how we eat.

    I agree though, there is too much salt in fast food and prepared packed foods in the food chain. I think most powder from of flavoring are 50% salt filler and that is unsafe at any age. We need to start talking nutrition, not diet food that adds more salt fillers. Fast food chains coatings and recipes should have salt regulated in flour and bread coating.

    However the CDC can be an integral part of the FDA circle of duties to help work out unsafe food and preservation salt in package, canned, contents. Maybe the FDA or ACLU could get some legislation introduced to limit preservation methods of our food with shorter shelf life. The FDA is the last stop on health and food issues and its time they regain that authority and responsibility and accountability.
