33. 6460 mg of salt in the Chilis Jalapeno Smokehouse Burger
that is like 5-6 DAYS' worth of salt in a healthy diet, or even more for someone trying to lower blood pressure (a friend told me she got her salt intake down to 700-1000 mg per day for a while to lower hers). I believe 2000 is advised as max, but something more like 1200-1600 mg should be the goal. Sodium is now considered as dangerous as cigarettes for people's health.
