As the campaign to cut the amount of salt in our food continues, the results of a 15 year study by British doctors have shown that eating less salt cuts the chances of a stroke or heart attack. Scientists hope the findings will convince the government to do more to cut salt intake in our food. Many foods, particularly ready meals, some breakfast cereals and canned foods contain high levels of salt. I think we all need to be more aware and read the ingredients labels on food items as much as possible before we buy them. We also need to try and use as little salt in our cooking as possible. If you really can’t live without salt, the healthiest thing to use is a salt alternative like No Salt.
