How is salt like a garden variety narcotic? Short of snorting it to find out, (which, if you’re truly that curious, then Godspeed), a recent report from the IOM finds that sodium is used to such harmful extents in restaurants and prepared foods that they’re suggesting that the FDA become involved and enforce more rigid regulation nationwide. Naturally, certain people think that such a suggestion is long overdue, and others want it to go away.

The above illo is my first ever piece for The New Republic and collaboration with their longtime design director Joe Heroun.
