more on salt

Outlaw high salt in processed food

By Lyndsay Buckland

CUTTING the levels of salt in people's diets will save lives and public money – but action must be taken now, experts have warned.
Targets have been set globally in efforts to reduce salt intake, including the aim of cutting consumption in the UK from just under 9g a day to 6g in an effort to reduce deaths from stroke and heart disease.

Where's the evidence one might ask. Never ever trust a so called expert without evidence.

Re: more on salt

I am 75 years old, have consumed and do consume a good deal of salt, and am, according to my physician, as well as the way I feel, "as healthy as a horse".

(Hard and sweaty physical work is good for me)

This is all the evidence I need.
