Did they find a alt intake level below which things start going bad?

300mg of sodium per day for the average person, 500mg for an athlete and 800mg for a professional athlete getting back into shape for regular season.

These numbers are required sodium intake levels and are from my previous readings. The study released in April referenced groups divided by over/under 2.0 grams (2,000mg) and 1.2 grams (1,200mg) per day respectively. This is against a background of average American consumption of 3.5 to 4.0 grams (3,500 to 4,000mg) of sodium per day.

In other words, no one is going to become ill by bringing their sodium consumption under 1.2 grams per day.
