 Think Twice Before Eating Bacon
Just a stroke of bad luck for bacon lovers, for a recent study found that just two slices of this favorite food contained more than 50% of an adult's daily salt limit.

Some products were found to have 6.8g of salt for every 100g.

With the increase in consumption of pork, and the news of its unhealthy salt content, consumption of bacon regularly can elevate the risk of killer diseases like stroke and heart attack.

Studies have shown the benefits of reducing adults' daily salt intake even by one gram, which can help avoid many thousands of strokes, heart attacks and heart failure every year.
