Teens Eat Too Much Salt

Teens can do something now to improve their future heart health -- lay off the salt.  The American Heart Association recommends limiting sodium intake to just 1500 milligrams a day.  But teenagers consume more than double that.  A new study shows teens can cut their risk for high blood pressure as adults by 30% if they cut back on processed foods loaded with sodium like pizza and chips.
