May 3, 2010 at 12:03 a.m.
Ranging Reporter Erica Rodriguez was in Victoria and Edna today talking with residents about their thoughts. Here's what you all had to say:
A: "I don't think they should limit salt, that's what gives the food the flavor."
Janice Acosta, Victoria resident, cosmetologist
A: "At restaurants, I think they should because people that have diabetes or high blood pressure, they have to watch their salt intake and they have a problem going out to eat."
Esperanza Suarez, Victoria resident, licensed vocational nurse
A: "I don't think the government has any business in what we eat. They're trying to take away all your freedoms."
Elaine Hart, Edna resident, disabled
A: "You must have salt to live, and how much you intake shouldn't be regulated by the government."
