Measuring Consumers' Awareness of the Major Health Problems Caused by Excessive Sodium Consumption

Results from a random sample of 1,300 households in Louisiana suggest that consumers know of the diet-related illnesses stemming from over-consumption of sodium. Levels of awareness are higher among older respondents, college graduates, women, those who live in single-person households, or those who are unmarried. Nutritional educational efforts must continue so that more persons will be able to link diseases with diets and subsequently be able to make better food choices.
