Sodium in "fresh" veggies

So, I just had lunch a few minutes ago..and was reading the sodium content on the bag of carrots I was eating from. 65 mgs! I mean it said no preservatives on the bag. I guess that is what they mean by the salt of the earth! However, maybe that is like the trace elements of fertilizer they put around the carrots...Even so, I thought that was excessive. Who knew??

I never knew that. Most foods we eat probably contain a multitude of things that do not do a body good.

well apparently. I am guessing it was from the fertilizer used to grow them, or maybe partly from the earth itself.

I dont think it is the carrots themselves, but the growing conditions.
