We are eating too much salt and it is killing us

Over the past few decades, a strong link between the rising incidence of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart disease and high sodium-intake (mainly through table salt) has been shown.

Humans can’t live without sodium, but we only need small amounts of it. Today, the problem isn’t getting enough sodium, but that we are eating far more of it than we need. Millions of people die each year from conditions linked to excess sodium.

Recommends adults limit sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg per day—that's equal to about 1 teaspoon of table salt!

Here are 6 serious signs that you are consuming too much salt.
1. You need to urinate a lot. Frequent urination is a classic sign that you are consuming too much salt. ...
2. Persistent thirst. ...
3. Swelling in strange places. ...
4. You find food bland and boring. ...
5. Frequent mild headaches. ...
6. You crave for salty foods.
