Survey Finds Britons Unaware Of Certain Foods Contributing Most Salt To Diet

October 5, 2009: 04:59 AM EST
People in the U.K. are increasingly aware of the connection between high levels of salt ingested and an increased risk of health problems, including high blood pressure, stroke and cardiovascular disease. But in a recent survey by the Food Standards Agency, 77 percent of respondents did not know that certain foods eaten every day, including bread and breakfast cereals, have very high salt content. Of more than 2,000 people asked their opinions and feelings about salt, only 13 percent picked bread as one of the top three of the 10 saltiest foods, while only 12 percent selected breakfast cereals.
