MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Too much salt can be bad for your health and you might be surprised by the foods you’re getting it from.

In a new list of saltiest foods, the CDC puts bread and rolls at the top.

They say they’re not actually saltier than other foods — people just tend to eat more.

Other top salty culprits include cold cuts, pizza and even chicken.

Health officials say salt should be limited to about a teaspoon a day but most Americans eat more.

    I saw a little news snippet about increased heart disease due to all the salt. You know what was funny? Each of the people on the show had also been smokers. I think I’ll stick to my salt.

    I didn’t think I had to worry about sodium because I don’t have high blood pressure, but it looks like I was wrong: http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/salt-ok-if-blood-pressure-is-ok/
