saltThe World Health Organization recommends that adults should not consume more than two grams of sodium (salt) per day. A new study in Tufts University shows: the excess of this limit is the reason for every tenth death from cardiovascular disease in the world each year, says Medical News Today.

Sodium is found in most foods – milk, beets, and even celery. He also is added in large amounts in processed foods, including meat and bread.

Sodium`s excess raises blood pressure, and this threatens to stroke and heart disease. However, very few are the scientists, who assessed how much damage on the health of the world’s population causes the excessive consumption of sodium. It was found that this is the cause of 1.65 million deaths per year due to diseases of the vessels and the heart.
