In this program, Crystal Rasnake talked about Americans getting to much sodium (salt) in their diets. She explained the recommended amounts of sodium and showed that the American average far exceeds this recommendation. Ms. Rasnake talked about the sources of additional sodium in the diet and reminded people of how the food label can be used to help make wise dietary choices. She also provided some educational links that can be used in the classroom.
