AHA Knocks CDC Estimate of US Sodium-Restriction Population

Dueling experts.
Close to 90% of people in the US who should keep dietary sodium intake to a recommended [less than] 2300 mg/day go over that amount, as does virtually everyone in high-risk groups--almost half the population--with a recommended maximum of 1500 mg/day. Those are the salient points from a report in the October 21, 2011 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, released today [1].

And the salient response from the American Heart Association (AHA) [2] was that the analysis, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), deeply underestimates the proportion of Americans who should follow the more restrictive sodium-intake recommendation.
Still think they have any idea what they are talking about?
