Pass the salt? Not so fast.

A whopping 70% of the sodium in our diets comes from 25 food categories, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Using data from a national survey done in 2013 and 2014, the report ranks those food groups based on how much of our salt intake they account for.

While the science is mixed on whether salt is a net positive or negative for our health, too much of anything is usually a recipe for problems.

The CDC's report says most of the foods ranked highly on the list were premade foods from grocery stores and meals from restaurants. (The report does not factor in additional salt we add at the dinner table but accounts for salt added in food processing and cooking.)

Here's the list.
