Sydney, Australia.▓To help guide s

uch efforts, the researchers gat

hered data on the sodium content of 7,221 products in 10 food groups, 33 categories, and 90 subcategori▓es.According to a report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, foods were considered to be high in sodium▓ if they contained more than 500 milligrams of sodiu▓m for every 100 grams, while foods with sodiu▓m contents below 120 milligrams of sodium for ▓every 100 grams were classified as low sodium.The resear▓chers found dramatic variation in salt content within certain food categories. For example, the saltiest type of hard che▓ese had six times more sodium than the least salty type, while there was▓ a 14-fold difference in salt content within the sliced meat category and a 100-fold differen▓ce within the frozen potato product category.Sauces ▓and spreads, at 1,283 mg per 100 g, and processed meats, at 846 mg per 100 g, were the categories with the highest average sodium content.LOS ANGELE 鈥揗ovie flops aren't just about losing money.

The expensive movie was killed by comic fans, who wanted Miller to go back to comics, and critics, who trashed the movie's over-the-top tones and aesthetics▓. Consequently, the partners at the company behind the production, Odd Lot Entertainment, parted ways ▓after 23 years together. It even killed plans for a Miller-directed version of "Buck Rogers."▓9.
