A new study published in The Lancet journal suggests that cutting down even a small amount of the daily salt intake could be of a significant benefit for our health.
The report comes just two weeks after another study conducted by researchers at Exeter University claimed that cutting down on salt intake did not have any noticeable benefit.
AdvertisementHowever researchers, led by Professor Graham MacGregor, said that the Exeter University study was wrong and a reduction of just 2g of daily salt intake could reduce the risk of cardiovascular events by more than 20 percent.
"Contrary to the claims by Exeter scientists and many press headlines, these new results, along with all the other evidence, clearly demonstrate that a reduction in the whole of the UK population and worldwide, is immensely important", he said.
