salt bloat

I don't understand why everything has to have so much salt in it. There's an amazing amount of salt in nearly every food item on the shelf at the store. Seemingly healthy things (such as veggie burgers) are loaded with salt - I guess to compensate for the unmeaty taste? Or to make it taste like a salty hamburger?

Here's an article from Men's Health/Eat This Not That listing the 30 saltiest menu items in America. It starts with #30 which itself has a lot of sodium, but the amount increases as it progresses up to #1 and the top item has so much sodium all you can do is laugh in horror.
