As far as the taste difference, apparently the method for sodium reduction is a gradual decrease in sodium levels, making the taste less noticeable.

I know personally that since I've cut sodium out of my diet, something that used to be moderately salty tasting, now is offensively salty.

But yeah, you're probably right...they'll find something else.

Just for some perspective, here's the benefits of a slight decrease in sodium.

Study: Cutting salt intake would boost nation's health - CNN.com

I'm back in class so time to focus...
Take that title: Cutting salt intake would boost nations health.
Now insert what you like to eat and we could add another few thousand things for the feds to regulate. Why should any citizen have to read a fu#$ lable to know whats in food. Lets add booze, beer, and wine while we are thinking of our health. I guess getting those fat ass kids away from the TV for an hour a day is just asking too much.

Re: Regulations On Salt?

You guys know that for under ten dollars peopl can actually grow healthy food right in there back yard? Its called a garden. We have one every year and with just a few plants we have a healthy food to add to our meals. On top of that its a great way to spend time with the family but why would we want any of that crap when the goverment can regulate the crap people eat.

If the gov't limits salt then what happens? Either the food tastes "worse" and people buy less of it or the companies find something else to mimic the results. Most likely some chemical. Don't fool yourselves into thinking they'll make less tasty food for less of a profit. That isn't how business works. The solution to people eating crap food isn't to regulate crap food out of the market. (That can't really be done. It's a game of three-card-monte.) It's better education leading to culture change. That takes a long time and isn't nearly fast enough for progressives though apparently.

Sure, assuming one has a yard to grow in. Not everyone does.

Flower box or hanging plants.

Even potheads can figure out how to grow plants in their bathroom.

Right, bound to yield a huge crop in a flower box. More than enough to feed the fam I'm sure.

No shit but i bet less then 5% of the people with yeards even grow gardens. I'd say my garden is about 15x15 maybe 15x20 and I have to bring stuff in to give to my employees because there is no way we could eat all that we grow. My wife is going to try her hand a canning some tomatoes this year so we will see how that works out.

Why can't the goverment come up with levels of standards to rate each food. So something low in fat and salt would get a high grade while something high in those would get a lower grade. So then consumers and producers can decide on the products they make or we use. Very easy and it does not force anyone to make their food to goverment standards. I personally think that processed food is high on sondium but I don't want the goverment mandating what can and cannot go on my shelf.

You'd surprised how many tomatoes you can get out of one flower box and a hydroponics system.

Re: Regulations On Salt?

Okay, poor people qualify for the SNAP program (food stamps). A family of 4 with head of household making ~20K (10/hours) can receive ~$600/month. This argument really should just reflect overall health consequences for using any ingredient that either preserves food longer or enhances taste (or both).

Re: Regulations On Salt?

Next regulation to debate:

Pepper.

Why would it?

a.) Makes people sneeze. This could lead to higher healthcare costs.
b.) Often used in controlling unwanted animals. The abuse must stop.




Why won't it?

a.) It's black. Only white seasonings need to be taxes and restricted.
b.) Red is a favorite color of Communists.

Congrats to you and your green thumb. Not everyone has a yard, or if they do not everyone is blessed with suitable soil/growing conditions, and on top of everything not everyone has the time/knowledge to dedicate to a garden.

And at the end of the day how does a garden solve any of the things we're talking about here? Growing up my parents had a garden and even a small vineyard, they were always canning veggies, making wine, etc. But in the end you still have to rely on the grocery store for the majority of your food needs.
