Czechs and Salt

According to the World Health Organization Czechs consume more than twice the recommended daily salt intake.  While the WHO recommends less than 5 grams (one teaspoon), Czechs average around 13 grams per person.

This doesn't surprise me a bit.  I've never understand it when my friends immediately salt their food without even tasting it first.  To be fair, I do the same thing but with pepper.  Of course, the difference is that I already know that Czech food doesn't ever have enough pepper for me.  I never need to add salt over here.

When it comes to salt consumption, Czechs rank #3 in Europe.  Only Hungary and Macedonia consume more salt per person than in Czechland.
