Excessive salt in daily diet increases stroke risk

Researchers recently reported that in their research, they found that eating too much salt in their daily diet increased the risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.

As long as you eat less salt, the incidence of these diseases will drop dramatically.

  The study was carried out by institutions such as the World Health Organization Nutrition Collaboration Centre at the University of Warwick, UK.

A report published by researchers in the new issue of the British Medical Journal states that they surveyed data from 170,000 people in the United Kingdom, the United States, China, Japan and other countries, demonstrating that replacing too much salt with diet and stroke and cardiovascular diseaseThere is a clear relationship between increased disease risk.

  Researchers point out that if those who remove too much salt eat 5 grams less salt a day, they can reduce the risk of stroke by 23% and the risk of cardiovascular disease by 17%.

  The World Health Organization recommends that each person absorb no more than 6 grams of salt per day, but currently many people in the world absorb more than 10 grams of salt per day.

Eating too much salt increases blood pressure, and high blood pressure is an important cause of stroke and cardiovascular disease.
