Prepare yourself with questions about your old job. Whether you were laid off or left on your own free will, have answers prepared for interviewers as to why you left your previous place of work. If you got laid off, don’t lie.
How does that work exactly? Remember — a resume isn’t your permanent record; it’s a marketing brochure about you. Do you every wonder why your new car dealer has so many brochures about each and every feature of their cars?

In my view, the main problem with this focus on salt is that it is not the only culprit and regulating its use won’t accomplish that much. We all know that processed sugars, fatty meats, cream, butter and any number of other things also contribute to an unhealthy diet that promotes heart and other diseases. These things are difficult to give up because sugar and fat supply a ton of flavor. In addition, very recent studies show that they are possibly addictive. To make progress as a nation on the subject of a healthy diet that reduces health care costs, we have to look at all of these things together.
