Michigan, Do You Know Your Sodium Level?

While many Michiganders are taking steps to improve their diets, health experts are concerned they are still getting to much sodium, which can increase the risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Registered Dietician Lori Jones says people aren't doing as much of their own cooking these days.



Most people consume nearly double the recommended 15-hundred milligrams of sodium per day, or about three-quarters of a teaspoon. Jones says, unfortunately, the consequences of a high-sodium diet are no longer limited to just adults.



Nearly all of the 1,000 people surveyed by the American Heart Association either understand or didn't know how much sodium they eat every day.
