1. Lessen your salt intake
Studies have shown that higher sodium (salt) intake is associated with higher blood pressure. If you are at risk for high blood pressure, you might want to consider limiting your salt intake. Preparing your own low-sodium meals instead of buying ready-made canned food, snack foods, fast food, etc. can be helpful. Instead of seasoning with salt, use other spices available in your kitchen. Also begin to read labels and become aware of how much sodium you are taking in each day. The average American consumes 6,900 to 9,000 mg of sodium per day, while the recommended dosage is only 500 mg.

Health tip of the day:
New research suggests that bacteria in tobacco can lead to infection - even just by handling the tobacco products. The researcher was able to isolate and grow some strains of bacteria in a petri dish, and suspects that there are up to a thousand bacterial species in tobacco products. The team found over a hundred bacterial matches in their research, including: "Campylobacter, which can cause food poisoning and Guillain-Barre Syndrome; Clostridium, which causes food poisoning and pneumonias; Corynebacterium, also associated with pneumonias and other diseases; E. coli; Klebsiella, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, all of which are associated not only with pneumonia but also with urinary tract infections; and a number of Staphylococcus species that underlie the most common and serious hospital-associated infections."
