New York City Launches "Choose Less Sodium" Campaign

Nearly 90 percent of people consume too much sodium. Too much sodium leads to high blood pressure, a leading cause of heart disease and strokes.

NYC’s Salt Education Campaign: The NYC Health Department launched the “Choose Less Sodium” campaign in subways and a supplementary Health Bulletin this week. Health authorities and organizations are welcome to run the campaign, if interested.

High blood pressure prevention and management are key strategies of the Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years. Colorado participates in this initiative and you can too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
