Your Health: Salt in your diet

Posted: Updated:

Do you pay attention to how much salt you consume? But, how much is too much and how much is not enough? You may be surprised what experts now admit.

A new report indicates most Americans should consume less salt, but too little salt can also cause health problems for some.

However, according to the Institute of Medicine committee, there is little evidence for determining exactly how much salt is too much and how little is too little.

The committee supports that, in general, eating too much salt is harmful; but, it is  raising questions about the harm from too little salt.

Experts admit, the right balance of salt, however, isn't known.
