World Salt Awareness Week
Salt. Like so many other 'good' things in life, too much of it can be bad for you.
Your Body needs no more than 5g (1tsp) of salt a day to be healthy
BUTit is difficult to measure and easy to eat more than 5g as so many
food products already have salt in them, before you add your own.
Excess salt intake can increase your blood pressure to unhealthy levels
BUTas you can’t actually FEEL whether you have high blood pressure,
therefore it just gets left to BUILD UP over time.
Abnormally high blood pressure can lead to heart disease and strokes
BUTthese conditions develop gradually until they reach CRISIS level,
so you may not know you’re at risk until it’s TOO LATE.
