Salt Habit

Do I need to cut back on salt if I don't have high blood pressure?

It couldn't hurt. A high-sodium habit has also been associated with osteoporosis; taking in more than 3,000 milligrams daily may interfere with calcium absorption, which can weaken bones over time. And according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, most women consume 15 to 40 percent more than the recommended 2,400 milligrams of sodium per day (the equivalent of about one teaspoon of table salt). To limit your intake, cut down on popcorn and cookies, frozen dinners, canned soups and broths and bottled salad dressing.
