In keeping with Fox News' longstanding War on Health, Fox today defended another unhealthy practice: eating lots of salt. This morning on Fox & Friends, the co-hosts attacked the FDA for considering ways to get Americans to reduce their salt intake, with co-host Steve Doocy complaining that the "food police are rearing their head" and co-host Gretchen Carlson fearmongering that soon "we [will] now see that you can't eat salt in your own home, potentially".
