Bad things about salt

Storyboard Text

  • Hey Bob! Did you see that article about the famous downhill skier, Picabo Street?
  • Hey Dave! I did see that. It sure makes you think about how many white starches you eat during the day.
  • Yeah. I can't believe that some professional athletes have food problems. But did you know that large amounts of sodium can be harmful as well?
  • Is that so? I find that hard to believe.
  • It's true! Most people only need 1 to 1.5 grams a day, but most of us get 3.4 grams.
  • You're kidding! Where does all of that salt come from?
  • It mainly comes from processed, frozen, or canned foods. They need a certain amount of salt in order to stay fresh while waiting to be eaten.
  • But what is the risk of eating too much salt? Is it even a big deal?
  • Of course it is! You can get a high blood pressure from consuming too much salt. People over fifty are especially vulnerable to it.
  • Dang! I'll make sure to read food labels more often and especially pay attention to the sodium count.
  • Later that day...
  • Maybe I should get my band together and write a song about the dangers of salt...
