Sample text:

The human body got its optimal level of sodium from a natural diet, but most Americans consume six times what they need. This excessive level of sodium in the SAD has caused an epidemic of high blood pressure. High blood pressure is dangerous because it puts a strain on the heart muscle and can lead to stroke, kidney damage, heart attack, or cancer.

High salt intake increases the pressure of the blood on the blood vessel walls. Over time, the walls react to this stress by thickening, and narrowing, requiring higher pressure to move blood to the organs.

High salt consumption also promotes scarring of the heart muscle, called cardiac fibrosis, which further increases the risk of arrhythmia. Similarly, the kidneys, which contain millions of tiny blood vessels, lose their function from the excessive blood pressure, leading to hypertensive nephrosclerosis, a major cause of kidney disease.

Sodium in Processed Foods Versus Natural Foods

If we ate natural foods without added salt, we would likely consume 500-750 mg of sodium a day. The average American adult consumes more than 4,000 mg/day, which is double the World Health Organization's recommended 2,000 mg/day, and nearly triple the American Heart Association's recommended 1,500 mg/day.

Only 12 percent of the salt in the SAD comes naturally from foods. Processed and restaurant foods account for 77 percent, and the remaining 11 percent comes from salt added at home. Processed foods are loaded with salt because salt heightens flavor, reduces bitterness, and enhances the sweetness.
