In The News: Daily Sodium Intake Over 1500 mg Linked To Higher Stroke Risk

A sodium intake greater than the American Heart Association's recommended level, 1500 mg/day, has shown to increase the risk of stroke, according to a recent study published in the journal Stroke. The researchers found that there was a 17% increase in stroke risk for each additional 500 mg consumed AND those that consumed 4000 mg per day had a 2.6 fold increase stroke risk vs. those consuming less than 1500 mg. A summary of this compelling study can be found by clicking HERE To check out the abstract from the study, click HERE Also, click HERE for a link to all my lower sodium recipes!
