(CBS News) – Researchers at the University of California San Francisco found as many as a half-million lives could be saved over the next decade, if Americans reduced their salt intake to a little more than 2,000 milligrams a day.

That’s less than one teaspoon of salt for daily consumption.

Too much sodium contributes to high blood pressure, which increases heart attack and stroke risks.
