Dietary sodium and risk of stroke in the Northern Manhattan study

Individuals on high salt diet may be prone to suffering a stroke attack.

This study explored the relationship between increased dietary exposure to salty foods (sodium) and stroke risk in a study group comprising of 2,657 Americans recruited from the Northern Manhattan Study. Researchers followed all the participants for an average of 10 years. 

Researchers noticed that the higher the amount of salt people consumed, the greater their chances of experiencing a stroke attack. The findings of this study suggest that generous consumption of salty foods may be a contributing factor to stroke attack.
