I’ve shared the Big Life life expectancy and sodium intake calculators before, but they’ve updated it and added a calculator for future hospital use. An interesting way to look at your health.

Follow Friday: Project Big Life Sodium Calculator

A University of Toronto Dietitian has developed an online Sodium Calculator┬áto help you estimate your daily sodium intake. This isn’t a precise measure of your sodium intake but it may serve as an eye opener to many people; especially those who don’t prepare many meals at home. Apparently I consume a smug 800 mg of sodium a day, 37% of which comes from baked goods.

If you’re interested in more closely tracking your sodium intake you may want to check-out something like the app Sodium 101.
