Reducing salt intake helps prevent thousands of heart attacks and strokes

Most developed countries have embarked on the path of propagation of a healthy lifestyle. Especially scientists often talk about the dangers of salt. We can already see the first fruits of the struggle for the health of humanity. Reduce consumption of salt per year to prevent thousands of strokes and heart attacks, writes The Daily Mail.

Social program in a number of countries, conducted between 2003 and 2011 helped to reduce salt intake by 15%. Note that the number of deaths from diseases of the cardiovascular system decreased by 40%.

This policy is simple and effective, it is aimed at improving the health of entire countries. It does not require large financial expenditures, most importantly, to educate people on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. It has long been known that it is cheaper and easier to prevent disease than to try to treat her.

Food producers from the UK, for example, will soon be obliged to comply with measures to add salt. Salt increases blood pressure, which triggers the development of ischemia, angina, strokes and heart attacks.
