Bread Beats Out Chips As Biggest Salt Source

from Bread and rolls are the No. 1 source of salt in the American diet, accounting for more than twice as much sodium as salty junk food like potato chips. That surprising finding comes in a government report released Tuesday that includes a list of the top 10 sources of sodium. Salty snacks actually came in at the bottom of the list compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Update: 2014 version from the CDC didn’t include eggs and omelets, now it does.
