Study finds American fast food saltier than other countries’

Study finds American fast food saltier than other countries’

by megan munson staff writer A man eats an Angus Bacon and Cheese Burger from his local McDonald’s and casually sprinkles extra salt over his fries, ignoring the nutrition label on the side of the carton. A dash of salt might seem harmless, but a teaspoon of salt packs a punch with 2,325 milligrams of sodium. According to CDC.gov, adults should consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day. Those who are 51 or older and who have high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease or diabetes are recommended to limit their sodium intake to 1,500 milligrams a day.

Studies show Millennials are less involved

By Madeline Bailey Staff Writer In spite of previous studies, researchers now say that Millennials, those born between 1982 and 2000, are less politically and civically involved than the Generation X and Baby Boomer generations. A new study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, describes Millennials as a generation more concerned with materialistic values and less focused on helping the community, according to USAToday.com. This generation is also less likely to get involved with helping the environment. The new study shows an increase in volunteering for the Millennials but only when it is required for school. “All student volunteers we have at Hotline are here for school requirements except for students referred by Teen Court,” said Lynn […]
