Watch the MilliGrammy Awards and See What Salt is Served
WOW! You’ve got to watch this ‘awards ceremony’ for restaurant meals with eXtreme amounts of sodium…
The winner’s (or losers, if you see it my way) have insanely high levels!!! Dining out to restaurants might be OK on occasion, however, this analysis of sodium in foods served is one more valid argument for why cooking at home is healthier. That is, to prevent health issues including chronic disease and high blood pressure.
“P.F. Chang’s Pad Thai with Shrimp was given the first-ever MilliGrammy for Sodium Content in a Single Menu Item. The dish has 5,250 milligrams of sodium. That’s more than a two-day supply. Or, as another Milligrammy presenter put it, the dish has the equivalent of some 26 carry-out packets of salt. P.F. Chang’s meal eclipsed competing items from The Cheesecake Factory and McDonald’s.” – Center for Science and Public Interest
Tell Trump’s EPA that YOU Support the Clean Power Plan!
Friends of the Earth Tell Congress: Puerto Rico needs immediate emergency relief!
“This year’s hurricane season has been historically destructive. It’s just the latest sign that our climate is changing — and it’s bound to get worse in years to come. Our elected officials can’t sit by and do nothing while superstorms devastate our communities. Let’s be strong in our support for those who need it most. Demand that Trump do more than mock the people of Puerto Rico by signing your name here!” – FOE
