Sodium intake and risk of death from stroke in Japanese men and women.

High dietary intake of salt may increase an individual's likelihood of dying from a stroke attack.

​This study investigated the relationship between the intake of salty foods and the chances of dying from stroke. Researchers monitored the salt consumption levels and mortality records of more than 29,000 Japanese men and women. 

Researchers discovered that indulgence in salty foods raised the risk of suffering from deaths due to stroke. Data from this study indicate that frequent consumption of salty foods may be tied to higher stroke mortality risk.
