The majority of Americans are consuming too much salt. That is according to a new report by the CDC.

The studies found more than two out of three adults are in specific population groups that should not consume more than two-thirds of a teaspoon’s worth of sodium a day.

At-risk groups include African-Americans and adults over 40.

High sodium intake is linked to a number of serious health problems including heart disease, strokes, and high blood pressure.
