Hi, my name is Dr Warrick Bishop and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute. A couple of quick words today on Salt.

Well, we all love it on our chips, but is it really that good for us? Is salt poison or is it a preservative? Well, there's no question that there's lots of data that's being built on over decades telling us that if we can keep salt levels down, we can lower blood pressure. And so on a population basis, it's one of the most significant things we could do broadly in the community to reduce the development of high blood pressure and therefore reduce risk of stroke and heart attack. So salt, probably not poison, but certainly keeping it limited is a great idea.

I've done a comprehensive podcast on that very topic. The link to that podcast is just below or attached to this video. So if you're interested in more about salt, please have a listen to that. In the meantime, however, I'm going to wish you the very best. Take care and bye for now.
