Salt intake

The Food Standards Agency recommends that only 6 grams of salt a day should be consumed.
I have started to adhere to this useful healthy eating guidelines. Excessive consumption can be fatal!
Even sugar - in tea cups and drinks - shouldn't exceed certain acceptable levels (I do not have the FSA guideline with me at the moment).
Ready cooked meals in supermarkets and takeaways are not good, according to dieticians.
We should read the ingredients on the packages (sometimes the percentages of ingredients on the package are misleading). It's better to prepare food on you own, just to make sure the ingredients are within acceptable levels.
