Health warning: The ingredient used by millions could cut life expectancy by two years


How much salt should I eat?

The NHS shares that adults should have no more than six grams of salt a day, which is the equivalent of one teaspoon.

However, the World Heart Organization (WHO) recommends going even lower, with their advice stating that adults should have no more than five grams of salt per day.

This new study shares that based on their findings, the optimal amount, or the “sweet spot”, remains to be identified.

Dr Qi added: “Because our study is the first to report a relation between adding salt to foods and mortality, further studies are needed to validate the findings before making recommendations.”

While the salt shaker can add to your daily allowance, the study warned that actually most of your salt intake comes from your groceries.
