America has the saltiest food in the world

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) -- The U.S. has some of the saltiest fast foods in the world.

A new study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal compared the salt levels of 6 different fast food chains in 6 countries.

The U.S. was among the nations selling some of the saltiest foods.

For example, McdDonald's McNuggets in the U.S. had nearly 3 times the salt of those sold in the United Kingdom.

Canada had the saltiest salads and New Zealand had the saltiest Big Macs.
