Evidence that Politicians Know Nothing about Nutrition

From New York State Assembly Bill A10129, introduced by Assemblyman Felix Ortiz.

399-BBB. PROHIBITION ON SALT; RESTAURANTS. 1. NO OWNER OR OPERATOR OF A RESTAURANT IN THIS STATE SHALL USE SALT IN ANY FORM IN THE PREPARATION OF ANY FOOD FOR CONSUMPTION BY CUSTOMERS OF SUCH RESTAURANT, INCLUDING FOOD PREPARED TO BE CONSUMED ON THE PREMISES OF SUCH RESTAURANT OR OFF OF SUCH PREMISES.

*facepalm*

This? This is what happens when people get TOO concerned about what’s in our food. They become ignorant, health-fundamentalists.

The problem isn’t that we eat salt (or sugar, or alcohol). The problem is that we use too much of it.
