Reduce salt intake was not able to reduce the risk of heart disease. This of course contradicts the general health guidelines plural socialized into society.
Reducing salt intake in the diet in the general population is found not to impact overall health positively. Reducing salt also does not reduce a person’s risk of heart disease. It was revealed in a review of more than 160 scientific studies have been published some time ago. In his analysis of a series of major health effects of salt, the researchers wrote in the American Journal of Hypertension and the Cochrane Library journal.
The systematic review adds new evidence that the more that show that health officials should re-evaluate policies that recommend everyone to eat less salt.
This review, prepared and analyzed findings from 167 previous studies, found that while reducing the salt to lower blood pressure in people who have normal or high blood pressure, it will also cause an increase in some hormones and other compounds that can affect a person’s heart health.
“I can not really see, if you look at the total of the evidence that there is reason to believe the benefits of reducing salt intake in the general population,” said Niels Graudal of Copen-Hagen University Hospital in Denmark, who led reviewtersebut told Reuters by conversation the phone.
Lowering salt intake is good for reducing blood pressure. However, some studies do not indicate whether that applied to cardiovascular health will be good also in the overall population of more luas.Meski Thus, many state governments have developed guidelines that called for people to reduce salt intake for long-term interests of their health.
High blood pressure also called hypertension is a major cause of stroke, heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases, which together constitute the largest human killer worldwide and has killed more than 17 million people per year. ”The question is not we ‘need’ to reduce salt intake, but ‘how’,” said Graham MacGregor, a professor of cardiovascular medicine and chairman of campaign group World Action on Salt who disagree with the findings Graudal it.
