The irony of adding all of the sodium to stuff is that they cut the iodine from it to make it cheaper as well. Only leaving trace amounts in food.
While also replacing things like potassium with sodium as well.
A lot of cutting down on sodium's health benefits is due to an imbalance of types of salt in your system being more equalized, but you will not see
any pushes in the media about the actual reason "cutting out sodium" is good for you. Then you have people replacing "iodized" salt (that barely has
any iodine in it) with sea salt, which is absolutely devoid of any nutritional mineral value.
The iodization of table salt was a replacement for iodine in bread that only some places had access to.
Well wouldn't you know that since the 1970s salt companies started putting less iodine in their table salt to top it off, because the process was a
little more expensive, or people are buying sea salt or kosher salt that is non-iodized. Now the US is on the verge of an iodine deficiency epidemic,
and nobody is talking about it!

Then the portions being a miss match of a dog an pony show doesn't help either, as what is listed on the containers is not necessarily what is even in
the container, just a relatively loose approximation.
