  1. Shaving 3 grams off the daily salt intake of Americans could prevent up to 66,000 strokes, 99,000 heart attacks and 92,000 deaths in the United States, while saving $24 billion in health costs per year, researchers reported (Reuters Life, Jan 2010).

    Less salt means lower blood pressure and less disease. According to experts' report from the Institute of Medicine, in 2005, high blood pressure (hypertension) was responsible for one-in-six deaths in the United States. Hypertension harms the heart, brain, and kidneys.

  2. Boosting levels of potassium in the diet may lower a person's risk of developing high blood pressure and may decrease blood pressure in people who already have "hypertension." The typical American diet contains about double the sodium and half the potassium that is currently recommended in dietary guidelines. Low potassium intake is thought to contribute to the prevalence of high blood pressure in Americans.
