Found that people with high blood pressure eat too much salt

A team of researchers at the University of Queensland Medical School in Brisbane, Australia, found that people with high blood pressure eat too much salt. But as soon as patients reduce the amount of salt they consume, their blood pressure drops dramatically, according to Reuters Health.

To get rid of hypertension, it is enough to reduce the rate of salt to 1.15 grams per day. British and American doctors recommend that people consume no more than 6 grams of salt per day, while the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends eating no more than 5 grams. In fact, residents of developed countries consume 9-12 grams of salt daily.

In May, the UK Food Standards Agency called on manufacturers to reduce the salt content of their products. Urgent recommendations concern producers of bacon, sausages, cheese, butter, breakfast cereals and ready meals. This is expected to help reduce mortality from strokes and sedentary diseases.

Specialists from the Boston Women's Hospital recently proved that a 25–35% reduction in the daily amount of salt in a person’s diet reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases by 25% and the risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke by 20%.

By the way, despite the convincing arguments of researchers, the Association of Salt Producers argues that reducing the amount of salt consumed will not bring tangible benefits to most people, with the exception of people suffering from high blood pressure.
