Here it comes

The FDA is going to regulate salt.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration should regulate the amount of salt added to foods to help Americans cut their high sodium intake, which can lead to high blood pressure, kidney failure and strokes, an influential federal panel said on Tuesday.

The Institute of Medicine said the move was needed because Americans get most of their sodium from processed and restaurant foods and merely telling them to eat less salt has not worked.

Yeah.  Telling us to stop didn’t work, so now they’ll make us.  This is an unbelievable and unconscionable abuse of power.  But then, what’s new?
