HOW MUCH COMMON SALT ?
We all know that excess Sodium is at the root of most of the Heart diseases as also Hypertension and Kidney problems. And the source of the Sodium is the common salt (Nacl) we rampantly take with different types of foods and drinks daily. World Health Organization recently conducted a research work which was directed to find out the amount of salt which a human can consume safely everyday.
Most of us, on an average use to take about 12- 15 gm of Nacl daily. Do you know what was the outcome of the WHO's research? WHO say's that Nacl consumption of a human should not cross 5 gm a day! Just for an idea, if you take a packet of salted potato chips containing 50 gms of content, half of your daily quota is fulfilled thereby!
