Be Careful with that Chinese Food

College kids, lonely bachelors, and deadline-pressed reporters might want to take a few deep breaths before reading this next report. Libby Quaid of the Associated Press explains that those endless cartons of Chinese food pack a lot—a whole lot—of salt:
The battered, fried chicken dish with vegetables has 1,300 calories, 3,200 milligrams of sodium and 11 grams of saturated fat.

That's before the rice (200 calories a cup). And after the egg rolls (200 calories and 400 milligrams of sodium).
Looking back on it, I can’t believe how much Chinese food I ate in college—what was I thinking?
