Denny's Sued For High Sodium Foods

Denny's Sued For High Sodium Foods

We all know that many fast food chain's menu items are high in the sodium department. Armed with this knowledge, we just avoid eating at these places. Although a New Jersey resident doesn't think it's right, and is taking action against one popular chain, Denny's. Together Nick DeBenedetto and the Center for Science in the Public Interest filed a lawsuit, claiming that many of this restaurant's meals "are dangerously high in sodium."

Just how high? To find out

.

The RDI of sodium per day is 2,300 milligrams, but if you're hitting up Denny's for lunch, a Grilled Chicken Sandwich will run you 2,070 mg, and a Double Cheeseburger has 3,880 mg — that's just in one meal. In the mood for breakfast? A Meat Lover's Scramble contains 3,180 mg of sodium, and a French Toast Platter has 2,000 mg. In their defense, Denny's does offer low-sodium options on their menu such as salads, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, and plain scrambled eggs.

While it's proven that a diet high in sodium has been linked to high blood pressure and heart problems, do you think restaurants should be forced to lower their sodium content, or is it up to the consumer to make healthy choices when it comes to his or her diet?
