A. 1,000; 500
B. 2,000; 1,000
C. 2,800; 600
D. 2,300; 1,500
D? please tell me if its correct or not :)
I think it's wrong. Check your text.
There seem to be several different minimum recommendations.
"The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend limiting sodium to less than 2,300 mg a day — or 1,500 mg if you're age 51 or older, or if you are black, or if you have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease."
i don't know none of the numbers in the test match with my choices :(
i still think its D because :
"Previous recommendations suggested that salt intake should be below 2,300 mg per day for American adults, but advised that people at risk -- those with hypertension, blacks, and older individuals -- lower their intake to 1,500 mg."
Thanks anyways !!
Yes, you seem to be right.
Reduce daily sodium intake to less than 2,300 milligrams (mg) and further reduce intake to 1,500 mg among persons who are 51 and older and those of any age who are African American or have hypertension, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease.
