Study confirms salt is bad for you

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A new study confirms what many others have already said, salt is bad for us.

The research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine looked at 12,000 adults and found the more sodium we have in our diets, the higher our overall risk of death.

Men, young adults and smokers were the worst off in the study.

On the other hand, having high levels of potassium in the diet was linked to a lower risk of death.
