A NEW STUDY SUGGESTS TOO LITTLE SALT IS HARMFUL

 

ACCORDING TO A RECENT ARTICLE IN THE NATION POST A PAIR OF LARGE INTERNATIONAL STUDIES ARE QUESTIONING THE VALIDITY THAT THE LESS SALT ONE CONSUMES IS BETTER.  IN FACT, THE CANADIAN-LED RESEARCH SUGGESTS TOO LITTLE SALY IN THE DIET MAY EVEN BE BAD FOR YOU.

BOTH STUDIES WERE PUBLISHED IN THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND INVOLVED OVER 100,000 PEOPLE IN 18 COUNTIES.  THE STUDIE ASSESSED DAILY SODIUM AND POTASSIUM INTAKE AND HOW THEY RELATE TO BLOOD PRESSURE, HEART ATTACK, STROKES AND DEATH.

PRESENTLY CANADIANS INGEST BETWEEN 3.5 - 4 GRAMS OF SODIUM PER DAY AND SOME GUIDELINES HAVE RECOMMENDED REDUCING ITTO LESSTHAN 2.3 GRAMS PER DAY AND THIS LEVEL HAS ONLY BEEN ATTAINED BY LESS THAN 5% OF THE POPULATION.
