Is it the salt shaker?

Check out this comprehensive update on sodium and hypertension...

SCAN members have access to the Spring/Summer 2011 Public Health Community Nutrition (PHCN) newsletter, Digest, which is devoted to an update on sodium and high blood pressure. This beautifully designed and well-written newsletter reflects the "Spectrum of Prevention" framework that focuses on more than just the individual. Acknowledging that the addition of salt to food by the individual is no longer the primary source of sodium for most Americans, a new model has emerged to help positively influence sodium intake. Think globally, act locally...

Two SCAN members were guest contributors, Jessica Lee Levings, MS, RD, LD and Carol Lapin, MS, RD, CSSD, LD. Their articles, along with those written by PHCN members, are available here:
