It needs to be highlighted the danger of too much salt, but as the report states, also having too little salt for your body can cause complications also.
In the UK, the government has taken the initiative of government health warnings regarding salt intake, and they recommend that you consume no more than 6grammes of salt per day. To make it easier for people to recognize how much salt is in ready made food, they have made it a requirement to state on packaging and labels how many grammes are in the food.
I know that this doesn't sound like a large amount of allowable salt, but remembering how light salt is, in reality it is a fair amount.
Maybe the Canadian government may start something off like this themselves. It does seem to clarify what is good for you and what is not.
