Woman’s Best Friend
In our November/December issue, actress Gina Gershon said she found comfort in the company of her cat, Cleo, after the deaths of people close to her. So we asked our Facebook fans if their pets had ever helped them get through a tough time.
I have lupus and my yellow Lab, Boogs, would be waiting at home every day when I was done with my classes at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her tail would wag and she would jump in bed; she was telling me “It’s time for a nap” or “Time to lay in bed with me and do your homework.” This was our daily routine for two years.

It’s unfortunate that the American Journal of Public Health published a report in which it was written that most people “have little control over their sodium intake” [cited in “The Skinny on Salt,” November/December]. Every person has 100% control over what they eat. Regulating sodium content in food will help reduce intake somewhat, but the primary responsibility lies with the individual.

We believe the point being made in the journal article is that salt/sodium is so ubiquitous in packaged foods that it is difficult for Americans to control their intake. Ultimately, however, you are correct: We each have the power to educate ourselves about the risks of excessive sodium consumption.
