From Rasmussen reports
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 33% of Americans think the government should set limits on how much salt Americans can eat. Most adults (55%) disagree and don't think it's any of the FDA's business. Another 12% are not sure.
Perhaps one reason why Americans don’t see a need for government regulation of their salt intake is that 77% of adults say they already monitor the ingredients in their food at least somewhat closely on their own. Only 21% of Americans say they do not closely check what’s in their food. Those numbers include 31% who say they monitor their food very closely and only six percent (6%) who don’t watch what they eat at all.
Still, most Americans (54%) hold a favorable opinion of the FDA, while 39% view it unfavorably. Those results have changed little since a survey conducted three years ago. . . .
