Americans rekindle their deadly love affair with salt

As unhealthy relationships go, this one could take years off your life.

Americans are consuming way too much salt, according to a recent report by the government’s U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They’re consuming around 3,400 milligrams of salt per day, the study conducted between 2013 and 2014 found. People should consume less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium each day, the CDC recommends; those aged 51 and over and African-Americans should limit that to 1,500mg. (To put this in a real-world context, a Big Mac from McDonalds MCD, +0.11% has 960mg of sodium.)

If US campuses can’t protect free speech, they need new management

UC-Berkeley this week canceled an April 27 Ann Coulter speech, fearing riots. This lunacy will only grow until colleges start standing up decisively for free speech.

The school is trying to negotiate a new date, venue and ground rules with the group that invited her, but so far has failed.

Its worry is obvious: Masked, rock-throwing thugs prevented a February speech by Milo Yiannopoulos. And the area saw 20 arrests last weekend as extremists of left and right battled in the streets.
