Exceeding your daily salt intake can have irreparable consequences. Doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov said that excessive salt consumption can cause cancer or stroke.

“We consume 12 grams of table salt per capita, and we are supposed to have five grams of salt. And hypertensive people and people over 50 years old need only 2.5 grams of table salt,” says Myasnikov.

The doctor named the main mistake that leads to weight gain. He emphasized that exceeding the daily allowance is fraught with irreparable consequences. “Excess salt wears us down, leads to cancer, leads to strokes,” the doctor said.

Myasnikov said that after excluding a significant portion of salt from his daily diet, he began to experience edema much less frequently. The expert also told us what can replace salt to replenish sodium reserves.

“Well, if you can’t do without salt at all, you can replace it with this (hypo sodium salt) for now. But my advice is to get away from salt, don’t buy this or any other kind,” the expert summarized.
