Sydney: Scientists have slammed spurious science underlying advice that minimizing salt consumption lowers blood pressure, insisting it does not recognize the complex role of sodium in the body.
Professor Willett said the finding that salt intake had not changed, while the prevalence of high blood pressure had risen, suggested the ````epidemic of obesity may be a more plausible determinant```` of high blood pressure rates than salt.That study``s author, David McCarron, said taken together the research indicated blanket public recommendations to eat a low salt diet, aimed at all people and not just those at highest risk of heart disease, were ````doomed to failure````.The finding has been published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
