This shouldn’t come as news to anyone who watches their food intake, but takeaway food is still contributing way too much salt to our diet. ABC News reports on a study from World Action on Salt and Health (AWASH) which found that 75% of the food offered at popular outlets contained more than half of the maximum recommended daily allowance (four to six grams) of salt. Cutting back makes sense, and if you do indulge, don’t go mad and add extra salt to the chips. Picture from Wikimedia Commons
