Pass the salt sometimes

We all know that too much salt is bad for you but too little can be just as harmful

We all know that too much salt is bad for you but too little can be just as harmful.

Researchers who tested a group of men with high blood pressure found that those with the lowest levels of sodium in their urine suffered the greatest number of heart problems over a four year period.

Strangely, this seeming paradox was noted only in men; women with the lowest levels of salt suffered the least number of heart problems.

The study was not able to determine if the sodium levels were a cause or effect of heart disease (Hypertension, 1995; 25: 1153-4).

For more information on the heart, see the WDDTY Guide to the Heart, and WDDTY vol 3, no 1, vol 5, no 11, and vol 7 no 7.
