Time to scale back on salt?

Too much salt in your diet contributes to high blood pressure. Keeping the saltshaker out of sight can help. It also pays to follow these tips: 1. Eat fresh foods rather than the canned or processed variety. 2. Choose a low-sodium variety of soups and other prepared foods. 3. Use herbs and spices to flavor your food.
