English term or phrase:It's never too early to be preventive
The answer, many nutritionists and physicians say, is yes, primarily because most Americans' salt intake is so high--often twice the amount of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) recommended daily allowance of 2,300 milligrams, or the equivalent of one teaspoon of salt. (The World Health Organization recommends adults consume less than 2,000 milligrams per day.)
"It's never too early to be preventive," says Dana Ellis, a cardiac dietitian at UCLA Medical Center.
