This article suggests that cutting the amount of salt you eat by one teaspoon a day could save you from a stroke. Research shows that eating less salt can reduce the risk of a stroke by a quarter and the chances of heart disease by 17%. The article also suggests that most of the salt we eat is hidden in processed and packet food and that many people are unaware of their salt intake. So perhaps the key is to cut out all processed foods that way you can add as much or as little salt as you want, and at least you know what is in your food.
