Russians named a habit that can lead to stroke Cardiologist Belenkov: The habit of adding too much salt to meals can lead to stroke 12:01

The habit of adding too much salt to food leads to the development of hypertension, which is a risk factor for stroke. Cardiologist Yuri Belenkov talked about this on the broadcast of the program “About the Most Important Thing”. Lenta.Ru.

Increased salt intake can cause hypertension. Long-term consequences include stroke and vascular dementia. Oversalted foods are also associated with a higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Before that, cardiologist Salamatina recommended that Russians reduce salt intake, instead adding spices and herbs to food, if this is not possible, replace regular salt with potassium salt. This approach has proven effective in numerous studies over the last 50 years. Limiting dietary sodium intake can reduce blood pressure by as much as 10 mmHg. Art. – this effect is comparable to taking drugs against hypertension. However, the doctor emphasized that following a healthy diet (such as DASH, a dietary approach to prevent hypertension) is more beneficial than replacing sodium salt with potassium salt.
