Avoid High Salt Diet
Too much salt consumption is linked to high blood pressure, declined heart health, increased risk of stomach cancer, osteoporosis and worsening of asthma symptoms.
DAILY LIMIT: On an average we eat nine grams of salt per day while a healthy adult’s daily limit is about 2.3g of sodium. People with heart problems or kidney disease are to keep their sodium intake under 1,000 mg a day, or as per doctor’s advice.
How to Reduce Salt in the Diet:
- Skip table salt
- Choose fresh, plain frozen, or canned “with no salt added” vegetables.
- Skip ready made/packed food.
- Rinse canned foods before use to wash off extra salt.
- Limit salty foods such as crisps, salted nuts, bacon, cheese, pickles, soy sauce and pizzas.
