New York has always seemed to lead the world in everything. From fashion, to design, and now, to health. They were the first to ban artificial trans fats. Next they implemented nutrition facts on their food. Now, they are lowering the sodium of packaged foods and restaurant chain foods.
Over the next 5 years, New York will work to lower their sodium contents by 20% . However, as we well know, most foods aren’t always made where they are consumed so this will begin to change the nation.
This change in sodium consumption would likely cut the risk of health problems such as heart attack, and stroke. As with all changes in lifestyle, they all happen one “baby step” at a time. These small changes over time have the ability to make America a better place if people accept the change and use the information for a healthier lifestyle.
