Taking a break from The Cigarette Wars for a while, the world is now fighting a new battle. The new enemy?


Yes, rumor has it that the new national dietary guidelines due this spring will lower the recommended levels of salt and public health officials in places such as New York and Washington are fighting to force food companies to use less salt.

Naturally, on the other side, there are the people who think our current salt intake is fine and that the government should stay out of our food, salty and non.

As such, I'm working on a pro/con story about this issue and I want to know your opinion.
