Evaluating the association between dietary salt intake and the risk of atrial fibrillation using Mendelian randomization

Lovers of salty foods are highly likely to suffer from atrial fibrillation.

This study assessed dietary salt intake in relation to the subsequent development of atrial fibrillation. The study population consisted of nearly half a million European men and women. 

Researchers observed the more salty foods participants consumed, the greater their risk of having atrial fibrillation. This study contributes to the growing body of literature describing an unfavorable association between the consumption of high salt diet and the onset of atrial fibrillation.
