How much table salt should you consume?
Table salt should always be consumed in moderation.
A new study has found that people who always add extra salt to their food are 28% more likely to die prematurely
This did not include salt used in cooking but rather extra salt added to food.
This study says Sodium intake is linked with higher risk of death
Study has determined that adding extra salt to food accounts for 6%-20% of total salt intake in Western diets.
High frequency of adding salt is be estimated as the difference in life expectancy
Women who added salt to their food essentially lost 1.5 years of life, while men who did so lost 2.28 years.
But,still there is some confusion if it's sodium or potassium that is causing this.
