According to a report published in The Guardian, a recent study found that an overall decrease in the salt intake of people in England has resulted in a drop in fatal heart problems and stroke.
In the study, recently published in the BMJ Open medical journal, an average 15% decrease in daily salt intake in England from 2003 to 2011 is believed to have resulted in the 42 percent decrease of deadly strokes and at least 40 percent decrease in fatal coronary heart disease seen in the country. The notable reduction in salt intake from 2003 to 2011 was made possible after the Food Standards Agency pushed food companies to lessen the amount of salt that they put into their products.
