I didn't pay any attention to how much sodium I was getting. My blood pressure went up to 185/105!

In three weeks of watching my sodium it went back down to 120/70. Now I pay attention to how much sodium there is in prepared food. I also switched from Tostitos brand salsa to President's Choice and switched from Old El Paso taco shells to President's Choice. No significant difference in taste.
