Moderation is key, says Dr. David Samadi, when it comes to sodium intake. Leading prostate cancer expert, Dr. Samadi, cautions Americans to achieve a healthy balance in their salt consumption. Too much sodium can lead to high blood pressure, but too little can increase cholesterol and triglycerides. Based on the amount of sodium in the processed and fast foods we consume, Dr. Samadi believes we really shouldn’t add salt to our diets. Currently, Americans consume more than double the recommended daily sodium amount. Dr. Samadi states most Americans should consume approximately 2500 mg, and those who are older, have high blood pressure or are of African American descent should reduce that amount to 1500 mg. Adding more fruits and veggies helps achieve balance, too, he adds. Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

When I sat in front of Dr. Samadi for the first time he asked me who had recommended I visit him, "Everyone" I answered. And that is the truth, everyone I discussed my situation with told me to go with Dr. Samadi because of his finely polished skills and expertise in this procedure.
