But mankind? Not so much. Wean yourself off of so much salt! Canned, processed and preserved vegetables often have a very high sodium content. Compare the sodium content on the Nutrition Facts label of similar products (for example, different brands of tomato sauce) and choose the products with less sodium. Also, those frozen meals that make life so easy? Very dangerous if you read the back. So do.
Look for “low-sodium” veggies or better yet, make your own. Use up your veggie’s, and for the last bits of veggie’s that always seem to get tossed due to lack of interest in them, spend 10 minutes, cut them up and drop them in a zip lock freezer bag and say GOODBYE to Mr. Heart attack.
