Another mainstream medical theory bites the dust! Just like with the cholesterol-and-fat bull..t in the past - it will be interesting to find out what has gone wrong and who did it! :)
Higher sodium intake associated with lower blood pressure.
PUBLIC RELEASE: 25-APR-2017
Low-sodium diet might not lower blood pressure
Findings from large, 16-year study contradict sodium limits in Dietary Guidelines for Americans
Chicago (April 25, 2017) - A new study that followed more than 2,600 men and women for 16 years found that consuming less sodium wasn't associated with lower blood pressure. The new findings call into question the sodium limits recommended by the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Lynn L. Moore, DSc, associate professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine, will present the new research at the American Society for Nutrition Scientific Sessions and annual meeting during the Experimental Biology 2017 meeting, to be held April 22-26 in Chicago.
"We saw no evidence that a diet lower in sodium had any long-term beneficial effects on blood pressure," said Moore. "Our findings add to growing evidence that current recommendations for sodium intake may be misguided."
