Shake the salt!
Study after study shows that we eat too much sodium, which has been linked to heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity and other health issues. According to the Dietitians of Canada, the average Canadian consumes about 3,500 milligrams of sodium each day. But the recommended daily value for sodium (the most we should be consuming) is between 1,500 and 2,300 milligrams. High levels of sodium have been shown to increase blood pressure and the number of calories we consume, as well as weaken bones.
