It is an indisputable fact that a long-term high-salt diet can cause high blood pressure and increase the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases! “The Lancet” published an article: In 2017, there were as many as 3 million cardiovascular deaths worldwide due to excessive salt consumption, which shows the harm of high salt. We can always see various articles and official suggestions, suggesting that everyone should not exceed 6g of salt per person per day, but how much is 6g of salt per person? How can we control 6g of salt per person per day? I joked before: Is it possible for a family to buy a scale to weigh salt? But even if you buy a scale, there is no guarantee that each person will be less than 6g of salt per day. The latest research is coming. If you can control the amount of salt by consuming a salt spoon for a long time, it will effectively control the amount of salt in the long-term and help control blood pressure. 1. The latest research on edible salt spoons The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention recently published a study that using a 2g limit salt spoon when cooking can significantly reduce salt intake and prevent blood pressure from rising. This study pointed out that people who used a 2g salt spoon for cooking had an average daily salt intake reduction of 3.49g after 3 years, while those who did not use a salt spoon only reduced an average of 2.22g. There is a significant difference between the two. It shows that the use of limited salt spoons is more able to achieve a low-salt diet. After 3 years, the blood pressure of these people who used restricted salt spoons was lower than those who did not use restricted salt spoons. Therefore, using a limited salt spoon when cooking is a good way to reduce salt to prevent and control high blood pressure. 2. Low-salt diet is more than just sodium chloride in Baishasha. Many people think that low-salt is just adding less salt to cooking. They are right, but not quite right. Because this is only part of the salt, in our daily diet: soy sauce, soy tofu, mustard, pickles, kimchi, bacon, sauce beef, ham, sausage, etc. These salty foods, the salt content in these foods is all Need to be counted within 6g. Isn’t it more difficult to calculate less than 6g of salt per person per day? 3. Low-salt is an attitude, a habit, and a consciousness. The World Health Organization recommends that the daily salt intake of adults should not exceed 5g per person, and proposes that “the global salt intake will be reduced by 30% by 2025” aims. The Chinese Nutrition Society recommends a daily salt intake of <6g per person. Low-salt diet is not really very strict. It is necessary to achieve 6g or less per person per day. On the one hand, it is difficult for everyone to achieve less than 6g in a short period of time. On the other hand, strict requirements are unrealistic. Low-salt is just an attitude, that is, we must accept a low-salt diet, we must understand that low-salt is healthy; low-salt is a habit, we must gradually develop the habit of a low-salt diet, starting with me, starting with The three meals a day start with low salt for children; low salt is a kind of consciousness. When we cook, we should gradually reduce salt as much as possible. At the same time, we should eat less food with high salt content or control it when we eat. Try to reduce eating out as much as possible, because the good cooks outside are always high-salt and high-salt; try to cook in different ways, except for stir-frying, learn to intersperse salad, steam, cook, etc.; at the same time, not only low Salt, but also a high-potassium diet, eat more whole grains, fresh vegetables and fruits. With the deepening of popular science, the deepening of health management, and the introduction of the national macro-health policy, more and more people are aware of the benefits of low-salt, and they are gradually adopting a low-salt diet. Those who are familiar with low-sodium 12.7% increased to 33.5%, and the number of people who knew that they should use a limited salt spoon when cooking increased from 2.4% to 18%. I believe that more and more people will realize the health of low-salt, develop the habit of low-salt, realize the benefits of low-salt, and enjoy the benefits of low-salt!
