Modelling the impact of sodium intake on cardiovascular disease mortality in Mexico

Cutting down our rate of consumption of salty foods could save us from dying from cardiovascular disease.

This study evaluated the burden of deaths from cardiovascular disease attributed to the consumption of dietary sodium. Researchers deployed the Integrated Model of Preventable Risk (PRIME) to estimate preventable deaths from cardiovascular disease among adults in Mexico following reduction in salt intake.

Data analysis revealed that the number of deaths from cardiovascular disease in Mexico could be slashed by 27,700 if men and women adhered to the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation of consuming less than 2 grams of salt per day. " The results show that if Mexico considers implementing policies with greater impact to reduce sodium/salt consumption, a significant number of deaths from CVD could be prevented or postponed," the authors concluded.
