Randomised controlled trials of healthy individuals show that the effect of reduced dietary salt intake (SR) on blood pressure (BP) is less than 1 mmHg. Still, health authorities use BP effects obtained in studies of participants with high BP to simulate reduced mortality in computer modeling studies. These simulations are in contrast to real data from observational studies, which show that a low salt intake is associated with an increased mortality of about 15% in healthy as well as in hypertensive individuals. Consequently, SR at the population level should not be a public health priority.

Translated title of the contributionIncreased mortality on a daily salt intake below six grammes
