Why all the importance on Salt and Sodium content?

Salt matters for two very compelling reasons:

  • it causes or aggravates over 20 salt-related health problems
  • at least 6 million Australians (half the adult population) have one or more salt-related health problems

The two most common and very serious health problems are:

  • pre-hypertension
  • hypertension

The two health problems with the most dramatic difference when skipping salt (both recovering within 4 weeks) are:

  • premenstrual syndrome
  • the vertigo of Meniere’s Disease

Salt Skip News, distributed in the ‘BP Monitor’, the Queensland Hypertension Association newsletter, is published bi monthly from February to December. It contains a variety of articles focusing on low salt. You can download the newsletters below:
