High sodium is believed to be associated with health problems such as heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, and kidney malfunctions. There's also a belief that diets with high amounts of salt correlates with obesity, but the link hasn't proven to be so direct. Instead, salt may trigger overeating by increasing the feeling of hunger, according to studies referenced in this WebMD article about salt & obesity. Add-ons such as sauces and condiments are the usual high-sodium culprits in most restaurant meals. Sodium additives are responsible for most high sodium amounts in packaged foods, especially frozen meals. For most adults, a healthy range for daily maximum sodium consumption is between 1500-2300mg; foods should be within 5%-20% DV per serving.
