DENSE FOG ADVISORY

UNTIL 10 AM

The National Weather Service issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for all of West Michigan until 10 AM.  Many reports of dense fog already exist, and your visibility may become worse before noticeable improvements.  Recent rainfall, high moisture levels, especially near the ground, and light winds all combine to create fog.  Slowing down and increasing your stopping distance are a few ways to increase your safety while driving.

Research: 1 in 10 deaths caused by too much salt story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new study says that while sugary drinks may cause 25,000 U.S. deaths a year, that's much smaller than the damage done by salt.

Researchers at Harvard found that one in every 10 U.S. deaths is a result of too much salt consumption.

They say high salt intake increases blood pressure which contributes to heart attacks and strokes.

Researchers also found that one in three deaths due to excessive salt occurred before the age of 70.
