Less than 20% of the average American adult's sodium intake is from the salt shaker. The other 80%? Processed Food The biggest source of salt for most Americans? Bread & Cheese If you're eating foods that don't come out of a box, can or plastic bag, you're sodium intake should be at safe levels. Go easy on the oil and fried fats, though, since it's tough to digest. Good luck.
