dari: starting tomorrow, high salt warning labels go into effect at chain restaurants in new york city. the health department says the dishes that have excessive sodium levels will have to post a special salt shaker symbol on items to alert customers. steve: joining us, dr. devi of the nyu school of medicine. we're talking 2300 milligrams. the thing about salt, it's in everything and we don't know it. i think we'll be surprised when we see the things with the salt shaker next to it on the menu. >> i think that's the thing. they estimate 10% of the items will have a salt shaker. i think most people trying to cut down may have a hard time picking out what has salt in it. it's in all our food. for people who have kidney disease or heart failure, this can cause a real problem for them. if you have a lot of salt, it's
bad, it was that you drink a lot of water. you can get water overloaded. when that happens, your kidneys have to pump it out. for people with kidney disease, they have a hard time. for those with heart failure, your heart is having a hard time pumping the blood or fluid. if you're holding on to more, it's harder for the heart to work work. dari: thank you for that explanation of why excessive sodium isn't good for you. >> it doesn't affect everybody with high blood pressure, but some people are salt sensitive. you hold on to the fluid. your blood pressure will go up. it's like a waterfall versus a tiny stream. dari: and on a simpler level, sometimes you get headaches from too much sodium and you don't know there's so much in there. steve: bread, soup, all the things you think are healthy. >> waking people up at night. they wake up because they're parched and they need water. they have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
steve: another great reason to lay off the salt. let's talk about this. we've heard about sugar and everything. now we're talking about sugar-free might not be great. it can have a lot of the same negative repercussions. sugar is not good for us. people make this leap. well, sugar-free must be great for me. that's not the deal. dari: i think it's worse actually. >> it depends. some of the sweeteners have side effects. especially when we're talking about teas, for teas, we thought sugar was bad for your teeth. part is because we have bacteria in our mouths that digest the sugar. they produce acid. that breaks down the enamel in our teeth. that's the protective coating. the sugar-free ones don't feed the bacteria, but a lot of the substances, whether it's your soda or sport drinks, they have other acids in them that just directly break down the enamel so they have the same effect.
might think if you can avoid the sugary drinks, that would be good, which is the best idea, to go with water. if you are doing the sugar-free drinks, you don't want to brush your teeth afterwards. if there's acid, you're scraping it in and helping to break down the teeth. you might want to wait longer. steve: that's counter interviewtive. -- intuitive. dari: the same thing for red wine. >> it has acid in it. coffee is very acidic. that's why people can have the stained teeth appearance. it's breaking down your teeth. the other thing is sodas have phosphorus in them. it works a little differently. it pulls the calcium out of your teeth. it has a reaction with the calcium. that causes your teeth to become weaker because it's pulling out the bone. it's called demineralization. dari: i feel like i went to science class. steve: everything i love is so bad for me. especially coming off
i indulged in all of it. >> the one good thing about the sugar-free product, sugar-free gum is good, not good, but not as bad. their saliva -- steve: it can fight a sweet craving. >> with that and the saliva washes away the acid. it can protect your teeth more. steve: all right. dari: i remember being a kid and my mom would talk about sugar being bad. i thought how can something that tastes so good be so bad? that was the beginning of life. [indiscernible - talking over one another] steve: doctor, thank you very much. we appreciate it. let's talk weather. nick, it was chilly out. you know we're getting into late fall, early winter. nick: it had that look today. temperatures in the 40s. combining. next few days will be wet days. we've been talking about that
