Eating less salt doesn't cut heart risks: study - Yahoo! News

Eating less salt doesn't cut heart risks: study - Yahoo! News:

"NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – People who ate lots of salt were not more likely to get high blood pressure, and were less likely to die of heart disease than those with a low salt intake, in a new European study.

The findings 'certainly do not support the current recommendation to lower salt intake in the general population,' study author Dr. Jan Staessen, of the University of Leuven in Belgium, told Reuters Health."
