Abstract

Sodium reduction lowers blood pressure and should prevent cardiovascular disease, yet some studies have challenged this viewpoint. Here, we review three recently published meta-analyses that examined the effects of sodium and potassium intake on blood pressure and other health outcomes. In brief, the evidence for population-wide sodium reduction remains robust.
