Processed food products contain much higher sodium when compared to their natural counterparts.

French fries routinely carry over 7.5 times more sodium than fresh ones (ie potato).

A canned tomato juice drink contains almost 6 times more sodium when compared to a tomato.

Meats prepared at fast-food joints (namely fried chicken) can have 3 times as much sodium as fresh meat.

Too much sodium is bad for our health. It is known to cause strokes, high blood pressure, heart problems, kidney problems, osteoporosis and other health problems.

Eat less processed foods as a lot of sodium-based additives are used in them.
