This week, the Federal Food and Drug Administration proposed new guidelines for the food industry to reduce sodium in processed and prepared foods. Americans eat about 3,400 milligrams of sodium a day, well above the 2,300 recommended, and according to the Center for Disease Control, more than 70 percent of sodium consumed is already in food before it reaches the table, and reducing sodium intake could prevent heart attacks and strokes. But what about unintended consequences?
