According to a large study, you can sprinkle some salt on your dinner and send it to the first grave.
Researchers have been tracking more than 500,000 Britons for ten years.
The results show that people who regularly add more salt to their diet are 75 percent more likely to die before they die, compared to those who never added or slightly increased it.
Increasing the amount of salt in your system keeps water in the bloodstream, increasing blood pressure by putting pressure on blood vessels. This, in turn, can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Heart disease and stroke are a major killer, killing about 160,000 people a year, and American deaths are five times higher.
NHS guidelines state that adults should not eat more than 6 g of salt per day. Children should have even a small amount.
However, experts say that salt ‘hidden’ in food means that many Britons eat the salt they realize.
A study of 500,000 Britons shows that regular salt intake can reduce your chances of survival by up to two years.
Nutritionists estimate that 26 million people could die prematurely each year
Encourage people to eat less meat and eat more fruits and vegetables Scientists estimate that 26 million premature deaths occur each year.
Edinburgh University researchers want people to eat 350 calories of meat, dairy products and fish every day – the equivalent of a large chicken breast.
It is estimated that people in the G20 countries consume an average of 620 calories from animal products.
People should try to eat 720 calories from fruits and vegetables, experts say. For example, one apple, a banana, and two peppers each contain 100 calories.
They say that dietary changes can reduce the risk of death from obesity, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.

“We need some salt in our diet,” says Chloe McArthur of the British Heart Foundation.
However, overeating can lead to high blood pressure, which in turn increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.
It is always important to be careful not to add too much salt to your food, but before you buy it, most of the salt is in the food, which means you are eating more than you know.
Researchers have decided to add salt to the table because it is difficult to estimate the total amount of salt in the daily diet.
Sodium is added to ready-to-eat soups, including pasta stews, to make it taste better.
Salt can increase their shelf life and can be added to pieces of vinegar and other boiled meats.
Healthy salt options with more potassium and less sodium are already on the shelves of the UK supermarket.
Tulane University experts analyzed data from 501,379 people from UK Biobank.
Initially, people were asked how much salt they sprayed on their food – never, occasionally, sometimes, or always alternatives.
An average of 18,474 premature deaths (under 75 years) were recorded during the nine-year follow-up.
About 40 out of every 100 people die prematurely.
According to new calculations published in the European Hart Journal, one in 100 people could die as a result of adding salt to their diet.
Professor Lu Chi and Tim estimate how many salt lovers have lost their lives compared to those who did not add salt.
At the age of 50, women and men around the age of 1.5 and 2.3 years, respectively, affected their chances of survival by adding salt.
Scientists have reduced the risk of premature death in people who eat a lot of fruits and vegetables.
Professor Qi writes: ‘Slightly reducing sodium intake, adding a little salt or no salt to the table, can have serious health benefits.
“Adding salt to foods on the table is a common dietary feature that is directly related to the individual’s long-term choice of salty foods and salt intake.
In the Western diet, adding salt to the table makes up 6 to 20 percent of the total salt intake.
‘And [it] It provides a unique way to assess the relationship between normal sodium intake and mortality. ‘
But Professor Qi added, ‘More research is needed to confirm the findings before we can make suggestions.’
In the UK, heart disease and stroke account for a quarter of all deaths, or 160,000 deaths a year, equal to one death every three minutes.
In the US, more than 877,500 Americans die each year from heart disease, stroke or other heart disease.
What should a balanced diet look like?
Foods should be based on potatoes, bread, rice, pasta or other starchy carbohydrates, ideally whole grains, such as NHS.
• Eat at least 5 different fruits and vegetables every day. All fresh, frozen, dried and canned fruits and vegetables are considered.
• Foods based on potatoes, bread, rice, pasta or other starchy carbohydrates, ideally whole grains
• 30 grams of fiber a day – this is the same as eating all of the following: 5 fruits and vegetables, 2 whole wheat crackers, 2 whole wheat breads and big baked potatoes with skin.
• Have some dairy or dairy options (like soy drinks) by choosing low fat and low sugar options
• Eat beans, legumes, fish, eggs, meat and other proteins (including fish with 2 parts per week, one should be fat)
• Choose incomplete oils and spreads and eat small amounts
• Drink 6-8 cups / glass of water a day
• Adults should have at least 6 grams of salt and 20 grams of saturated fat per day for women or 30 grams per day.
