Cutting Out Even a Little Salt Can Have Big Health Benefits
For many, reducing sodium in the diet even modestly can have an outsize impact on lowering blood pressure.

Sometimes, seemingly small changes in a health measurement can make a very large difference to people’s well-being. Such is the case with the effect on blood pressure of the essential nutrient sodium, the problematic half of the popular flavoring agent sodium chloride, commonly known as salt.

The amount of salt that is safe for people to consume has been embroiled in controversy for a century, and the debate is unlikely to be resolved anytime soon. Scores of studies of varying quality linking sodium intake and health have swung the pendulum back and forth, stymieing regulations to limit sodium in most commercially prepared foods.

Some people are especially sensitive to sodium’s ability to raise blood pressure, but given how common high blood pressure already is, and how difficult it is to avoid consuming too much salt, many experts maintain that the safest approach is an overall reduction in sodium levels in prepared and processed foods.

My/MI opinion: Eating out, or ordering in, the enemy of health. Unknown public kitchens add whatever is needed to make look good, and tasty, often using sodium packed products./////Comer fuera, o pedir  órdenes de restaurantes, es el enemigo de la salud. Las cocinas públicas desconocidas agregan todo lo necesario para que se vea bien y apetitoso, a menudo utilizando productos llenos de sodio.
