Stop regulating my life! For those who want less sodium, buy the lower sodium alternatives. Not all of us need that dietary restriction.

Doesn't the government have more important issues to deal with, such as handling the rampant unemployment or going after the tax cheats in Obama's cabinet?

Sure you do. Your kidneys will thank you. There is way too much sodium in processed foods to begin with. Two of the biggest offenders which people don't consider are canned vegetables and soups.

I eat mostly whole foods, fruits and vegatables. However, when I do want bacon, I want the real deal, baby.

I shouldn't have to give things up because people are too stupid or lazy to regulate their own diet and exercise habits.
