Essentials: Salt

Salt is essential for human life. Unfortunately too much salt can raise blood pressure, which can lead to heart failure, stroke and kidney disease. There are 100,000 deaths each year from eating too much salt. Try to limit the amount of salt you consume and if you’re not sure, check the sodium amounts and limit processed foods.
