Argentina Says No Salt Shakers Allowed

Restaurants in the capital of Argentina are losing the salt.

Don't expect to see any more salt shakers on tables in Buenos Aires.

Why?

It's all part of a national program to get folks to reduce their sodium intake and get high blood pressure to healthy levels.

Restaurants will still have salt, you'll just have to ask for it.
But only AFTER you've tasted your food!

Nearly four million people- or a quarter of the population- in Buenos Aires have high blood pressure, which has been linked to too much salt.
