It’s not the salt shakers on our tables that explain why Americans consume way too much sodium. It’s the processed foods we buy in grocery stores.

A new analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that 70 percent of the pizzas, pastas and meat dishes (think frozen entrees) we purchase in chain grocery stores exceed the Food and Drug Administration’s “healthy” labeling standards for salt. Americans also get a lot of sodium from soups, cold cuts and bread.

So, who’s getting the most salt from packaged foods?

Researchers had a hunch that shoppers in Southern states might be filling their carts with more salty foods. Their reasoning? The prevalence of high-blood pressure (aka hypertension) — which is linked to sodium consumption — is higher in the South. (And, hey, the South has a reputation for foods like fried chicken and salty biscuits.)

Why America incarcerates people, in one chart

I always cringe when I hear people claim that most inmates are in prison for drug offenses. Completely not true. If we are looking at state prisons, which is were most people are incarcerated and reform is more necessary, violent offenders make up almost 54% of the inmate population. That means if we wanted to reduce our state prison population by 50% (which you will hear candidates say), we would need to release all drug, public order, and property offenders and we would still come up short. Offenders usually have more than 1 previous arrest for a crime, so labeling people “drug offenders” distorts their previous criminal history. 

It is very true that the number of drug offenders has increased dramatically since the 1970s, but it is nowhere near the truth that most people in prison are nonviolent drug offenders.
