Signs of consuming too much salt
It is very tempting to add extra salt to dishes to create more flavor. But you shouldn’t do that, because ingesting too much salt is harmful to our body. Most people eat twice as much salt as recommended by the World Health Organization. By salt we mean sodium chloride.

And high blood pressure is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Therefore try to eat as little salt as possible. On the next page you will find the 10 warning signs that you should not ignore.
