Some Americans are consuming more salt than federal guidelines recommend, a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows.

The CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report say that certain groups of people exceed the daily recommended salt intake.

The groups over the limit include 99 percent people over 51, African Americans, and people with hypertension, diabetes or chronic kidney disease.

The CDC recommends that people in those groups intake 1,500 milligrams of sodium daily to reduce their heightened risk for high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.

All other people age 2 and older should not take in more than 2,300 milligrams of salt daily. However 90 percent of people in that group exceed the daily recommended level.

The CDC found about 75 percent of salt in most Americans diets is added to commercial foods or restaurant food.
