Bolivia wants to ban salt from restaurants

LA PAZ, BOLIVIA: Bolivia has a novel idea to cut down the salt intake of its people: banish it from restaurant tables.

About a third of Bolivia’s population suffers from hypertension, or high blood pressure, and the government blames salt for it.

“We must remove table salt,” announced Guillermo Mendoza, vice minister of consumer rights, upon taking office.

Mendoza also wants restaurants to indicate to diners how much salt and sugar is in their meals.
